Joel Levy - Freudian Slips (2nd Hand Hardback)
Freudian Slips presents the essential facts and findings of the subject of psychology in an accessible and enjoyable way, leaving no slip or phallic symbol unexamined.
From psychoanalysis to behaviour therapy, the book charts a path through the subject's controversial history, and encounters the work of all the big names in the field.
From Bobo dolls to invisible gorillas, Clever Hans to Little Albert, the halo effect to the Stockholm syndrome, the book charts a path through the subject's controversial history and along its most intriguing diversions. Discover how Pavlov made a dog neurotic and electroconvulsive therapy turned a man bisexual, why schizophrenics can tickle themselves and the US military developed a pigeon-guided missile. Learn what it really means to dream you are flying and exactly why Freud smoked that cigar. Freudian Slips covers all the most important and interesting bits of psychology.

"You don’t have to have any prior knowledge on psychology as it’s all explained in simple terms and each chapter takes a brief look at different theories / experiments etc. It is perfect for someone looking for an overview on the topic rather than an in depth study." - Goodreads Review.
