Ideal for browsing, pop quizzes, or class openers, this accessible and entertaining reference covers more than 1500 topics about how the human mind and the science of psychology really work.

Examples: How original were Freud’s ideas? How effective is punishment? What does it mean to say the brain is plastic? Why do psychiatric classifications change over time? Subject areas include the history of psychology, major movements, the brain, developmental psychology, abnormal psychology, motivation and the search for happiness, group dynamics, forensic psychology, and the psychology of money, morality, love and marriage, trauma, and everyday living.

“The author does a good job explaining technical concepts simply. Answers are in plain nontechnical English, and formulas and jargon are kept to a minimum. This second edition will find its place with other popular psychology books.”
Booklist

“Bridges the divide between the pop psychology discussed on television talk shows and in magazines, which is often driven more by the entertainment value of the topics than the science behind them, and academic research that is published in journals, in language that is inaccessible to the average person. Highly recommended.”
Choice

“This title intends to provide a rigorous scientific look at psychology that is practical, accessible, and engaging to general readers. Solid, affordable … for readers with a general interest in psychology.”
Library Journal

“Any novice in the study of the human mind would be hard pressed to find a more thorough assortment of succinct questions and answers than those found in The Handy Psychology Answer Book.”
