The Psychology Companion Reviews


'This is a really helpful book, especially for A-level students or those who have just begun a psychology degree. ...[it] is likely to be a valuable resource for all psychology students throughout their degrees.' - Helen Galliard, Psych-Talk 'In a single volume, this book demystifies the divisions that bedevil psychology and also provides a dictionary of terms and concepts and an unbiased history of the discipline. This is the companion students will keep by them throughout their psychology course, and probably long after.' - Christopher Spencer, Emeritus Professor, University of Sheffield, UK 'This book is a potential life-saver. I liked the way that names are linked to topics in a way that could speed up the initial research process. My students all liked the broadness of the book.' - Andrew White, Chartered Counselling Psychologist and teacher, running an A Level psychology course.
