    Below is part of the introduction to my book which explains the thinking behind it I have no special talents I am only passionately curious Albert EinsteinIt's nice to have something in common with Albert Einstein I've had a passionately curious interest in psychology for over 20 years I began studying psychology in 1990 and I've been teaching psychology in some capacity or another since 1998I have also been sharing my passionately curious interest online for a good few years now Back in the early days I would regularly post on Myspace I often wonder what happened to TomThen before you could say Zuckerberg Charlie bit my finger and what the Hell is a hashtag? Along came Facebook YouTube and Twitter These social media giants offer unprecedented opportunities to connect with millions of people around the world as do the latest platforms on the block Google and Pinterest I use one or of these social networks daily to share my enthusiasm for psychology and have been doing so for over six years now That makes uite a back catalog of posts on a wide range of psychological topics And it is this point that brings me to the thinking behind the book You see during this time certain posts have stood out in terms of the response they elicited be that in number of likes comments made how often the post was shared etc and it is these posts which form the basis for the majority of the material covered in this book So What is it About These Posts Then? They make you think they have real world relevance they challenge assumptions they make you exclaim Well I never Basically they cover topics that people just find incredibly interestingI should add that posts which cover uirky fun and irreverent topics are also very popular and will also feature in this book not least because psychology can be a serious business and it's good to remind yourself that there is funny ha ha as well as funny peculiarWho is This Book For?This book is for anybody interested in psychology whatever their connection with the topic If you are a psychology student I hope that this book shows what a great decision you made to study this fascinating subject If you are thinking about studying psychology I hope that this book will convince you that you absolutely should If you teach psychology I hope that this book will provide you with some engaging content to present in class And if you just have a general interest I hope that this book will make you realize that psychology covers a variety of topics which are not only incredibly interesting but also applicable to many people's lives including your own

    I want to preface my review by stating that I received a free copy of this book from the author I do not know him personally and this review reflects my honest opinion of the bookThis book's title makes a bold claim What is interesting is very subjective as you may have found out yourself when met with bored stares while sharing your most exciting vacation anecdotes with friends Luckily psychology is an easy subject to be interested in Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and freuently covers uite serious and dull topics because most of the exciting stuff has been done or there is no way in this day and age to get ethical clearance to do the exciting stuff that hasn't been doneI approached the book with cautious enthusiasm I am in the field of psychology myself doing research on some pretty interesting things and have read uite widely about interesting psychology experiments Clearly my interest in psychology is there but the material had to deliver either new content or old content in a new wayLuckily it did the job and did it well The book does not have a coherent narrative plot but instead is a collection of interesting articles and uotes related to psychology I would describe the book as compiled rather than written and the author's introduction explains why this is soThe book is suited to the layperson and nothing than a passing interest in psychology is needed to enjoy the stories What delighted me the most was the resources shared throughout the book Websites films books and articles are mentioned and whenever possible access to information online is providedApart from being an incredibly interesting read I learned several new things found a great many new topics to pursue and laughed out loud a couple of timesI rated the book four stars instead of five because it does feel unfinished to some degree I think that with further editing perhaps the inclusion of additional content and some rearranging of the existing articles a cohesive flow can be achieved However the author suggests in the introduction that the chapters can be read in any order so my experience might be due to reading the book from beginning to end in one sitting

    A slightly random book a collection of articles in very different styles Useful as an introduction to the different areas of psychology their origins names of some founding fathers and best of all links to free material Websites YouTube free online courses Also very nice that the book gives lengthy and glowing testimonials about two of my colleagues I've been in the presence of greatness without knowing it
