From School Library Journal
Adult/High School—It is perhaps the breadth and diversity of these essays that leave the collection feeling slightly uneven but allow various types of readers to browse it with some satisfaction. The selections are by professors, psychoanalysts, graduate students, and clinical psychologists. Robin Rosenberg's "What Do Students Learn from Hogwarts Classes?" seems a well-suited (and entertaining) addition to the syllabus of an education major, not "just" a Potter enthusiast. Some of the genuinely good pop-psychology fun comes from essays on such topics as Dobby and self-mutilation; Lord Voldemort and antisocial personality disorders; the romantic attachment styles of Ron, Harry, and Hermione; and, yes, even Harry Potter therapy (step-by-step instruction on "learning to cast positive spells of thought instead of negative"). This book would be an innovative choice for educators looking to engage older students of literary criticism or theoretical psychology; it's a hit-or-miss indulgence for fans of the series.—Shannon Peterson, Kitsap Regional Library, WA

Interesting, but if you already have a basic understanding of these pretty basic principles, than you don't need this book, as you've probably already applied them yourself to the movies or didn't apply them because it would be a waste of time.
(NOTE: THIS BOOK IS ON ALL OF THE WIZARDING WORLD; NOT JUST HARRY POTTER)
