Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“A wonderful combination of coffee-table book, engaging and informative reading experience, and handy reference. ... it resembles Carl Sagan’s popular works.” (Booklist)

“Targeting an audience of lifelong learners... [it] offers a variety of ideas and perspectives and some excellent reading lists for the general reader.” (Library Journal)

”An intriguing book! I’m impressed with the author’s knowledge of current research and his ability to effectively translate it for the general reader.” (Gordon Claridge, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor, Psychology Department, University of Oxford)

Bridges the gap between the findings of neuropsychological research and their application by the general public. Humane clarity and practicality are the hallmarks of Dr. Howard’s work. A book to be read -- and applied.” (Peter J. Fagan, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Director, Office of USFHP, Behavioral Healthcare, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, The Johns Hopkins Medical Institute)

“This useful look at all the facets of the brain and its inner workings will be an excellent resource for those curious about how this organ works and for those looking for a more readable interpretation of the scientific studies done on it.” (Library Journal)

HASH(0x9b7d6a5c) étoiles sur 5 Great summary on the research, for scholar and casual reader alike! 15 mai 2014
Par Pam Otto - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is great for the casual reader who perks up when they hear about new research on stress, or sleep or happiness. But it is also a practical compendium of modern cognitive research for the new psychology student or the experienced practitioner. Edited by Pierce J. Howard, Ph.D., this is the 4th edition, and the 4th one I have purchased, because of its breadth and the concise way Dr. Howard sumarizes the research and why it matters. Pick out topics of interest or read it front to back, you will walk away with information to enhance your understanding and your life.

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I learned about this book from a colleague in the Psychiatry clinic I recently retired from working in. It was fun at work and it is fun at home now to browse through - just opening to any page and fining out more about what is probably the most complex and least understood organ in the human body.
Great information in digestible bites for professional of interested lay-person alike!
