Books all Psychology students should read

We asked faculty for recommendations of papers (and books) that every graduate student in psychology should read. This is not intended to be a complete list of papers. Not by a long shot. In fact, it s limited to the kinds of papers that graduate students might miss in the regular course of their research. We don t include important review papers, experimental findings, or theories. You ll find those on your own. The papers we list below are intended to be pretty general in that they inform the way we think about our science and how we do our science…

Human Psychology books

In a way, all fiction books help you explore some facet of human psychology. They deal with emotions and how people feel and motives, so they don t explain psychology to you but help you to gauge how the human mind twists and turns and thinks in relation to people, things and ideas. However, if you are looking forward to reading books on Psychology that are neither fully research based nor too vanilla in terms of explaining human emotions, here are a few books you might like: 1.

Psychology 101 book Amazon

Popular culture fills the mind with a steady diet of fantasy, from tales of UFO landings and alien abductions, haunted houses, and communication with the dead to claims of miraculous cures by spiritual healers and breakthrough treatments in ‘alternative’ medicine.

Music Psychology book

Last year, Horizon’s fascinating documentary on how music works was one of our most-liked pickings of 2010. But perhaps even more fascinating than the subject of how music works is the question of why it makes us feel the way it does. Today, we try to answer it with seven essential books that bridge music, emotion and cognition, peeling away at that tender intersection of where your brain ends and your soul begins.
