In a journey spanning 50 books, hundreds of ideas and over a century, 50 Psychology Classics looks at some of the most intriguing questions relating to what motivates us, what makes us feel and act in certain ways, how our brains work, and how we create a sense of self.

50 Psychology Classics explores writings from some iconic figures such as Freud, Adler, Jung, skinner, James, Piaget and Pavolv, but also highlights the work of contemporary thinkers such as Gardner, Gilbert, Goleman and Seligman. We all need a personal theory of what makes people tick. To survive and thrive, we have to know who and what we are, and to be canny about the motivations of others. The common route to this knowledge is life experience, but we can advance our appreciation of the subject more quickly through reading.

From the author of the bestselling 50 Self-Help Classics, 50 Success Classics and 50 Spiritual Classics, which have sold over 100,000 in the English language and have been translated into 17 languages, 50 Psychology Classics will further your understanding of human nature and yourself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
At long last a chance for those outside the profession to discover that there is so much more to psychology than just Freud and Jung. 50 PSYCHOLOGY CLASSICS offers a unique opportunity to become acquainted with a dazzling array of the key works in psychological literature almost overnight. -- Dr Raj Persaud, Gresham Professor for Public Understanding of Psychiatry
This delightful book provides thoughtful and entertaining summaries of 50 of the most influential books in psychology. It's a 'must read' for students contemplating a career in psychology. -- VS Ramachandran, Director, Center for Brain and Cognition, University of California, San Diego
A brilliant synthesis. The author makes complex ideas accessible and practical, without dumbing down the material. I found myself over and over thinking, 'Oh, that's what that guy meant. -- Douglas Stone, lecturer on law at Harvard Law School and co-author of Difficult Conversations
Butler-Bowdon writes with infectious enthusiasm. He is a true scholar of this type of literature. * USA Today *
