Explaining more than 100 of the most important big ideas and groundbreaking theories in the field of psychology in a clear and simple way, this is the perfect introduction to the history of psychology and understanding human behaviour.

The DK Psychology Book provides an excellent introduction to the history of psychology from its roots in philosophy right up to modern studies of autism and psychiatry. The groundbreaking ideas of great thinkers in the world of psychology from Freud and Carl Jung to Noam Chomsky and Daniel Kahneman are outlined here.

Covering all the schools of psychology including psychotherapy, cognitive psychology, and behaviourism, this handy reference is ideal for students or anyone interested in this popular subject. Hard-to-grasp concepts are explained in clear language with clever graphics that break down the ideas to make them accessible to everyone. And here is also a directory of psychologists and a useful glossary of psychological terms.

How does memory work? Who is the "distractor" in your family? What was the "car crash" experiment?

Employing DK's trademark visual approach, The Psychology Book takes a frequently confusing subject and makes sense of it, clearly highlighting both historically important and emerging ideas in this critical field of science.

"This book is simply fantastic. I think it may even be my favourite book of all time. It is like an encyclopaedia of psychology (my favourite field). It gives each scientist/psychologist a page or 3 of their own, explaining where they sit in the time line, what their ideas were, all with beautifully bright colours, diagrams, pictures and design. I simply cannot think of a better book in which to reference different theorists in such a simple way." - Google Review.
