Freudian slips: all the psychology you need to know by Joel Levy [Suneeta, Highland Park Library]

Did you know that despite being experienced by one out of 10 people in the U.K., claustrophobia is not even one of the top 10 phobias? The most common phobia is, in fact, arachnophobia, an extreme fear of spiders. 

Did you know that there is no such thing as brain washing? Did you know that the opposite of déjà vu is jamais vu - an instance where someone is unable to recognise an everyday thing that should be familiar? 

Here is a guide that will reveal all this and way more besides. It tells of the foibles and fetishes of the mind and the workings of the human psyche. This clear and concise compendium based on important theories and experiments describes and delights in a manner that is both comprehensible to the average reader as well as being sophisticated enough for those with scientific bent. 

Enjoy it beside the fire, read it aloud as a part of dinner table conversation or just quietly read while awaiting an appointment. You may learn a bit more about things that you already know, or learn something completely new about people’s personalities and what makes them tick. Levy has also included some interesting biographies of well-known psychologists and practitioners, so go ahead - find out exactly why Freud smoked that cigar!
