Review by EKI
Short but exhaustive and intensive introduction to psychology. From its definition to its sources, evolutions, experiments, debates, perspectives and today's uses.All in a very straight forward and conveniently pieced text.I have enjoyed the read and it has provided source material for very interesting conversations and thoughts at home.
