External Reviews

"A very interesting introduction to psychology! I loved the bright and engaging layout, and the scientist pages scattered throughout."

"The strong point of ''Heads up Psychology'' is that is it divided into 5 major sections, that is, developmental psychology, biological psychology, cognitive psychology, psychology of difference, and social psychology, and also offers titbits on information of the definition of psychology, the role of psychologists, research methods, a directory of psychologists as well as a glossary,

Through easy to understand colourful interactive and interesting articles each related to the sections mentioned above, readers of any age are not only introduced to this field of study but are also encouraged to witness the theories explained either through themselves or in their surroundings."
