Free Psychology Book

interesting psychology

Hi everyone,

The kindle version of my new Psychology book is available for free for the next 5 days (May 17-21) See following links. (USA Link) (UK Link)

The book is based on topics I've posted about over the last six years which 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. This type of content makes you think, it's relevant to people's lives, it challenges assumptions and makes you exclaim "Well I never!" Basically, it's about things that most people just find incredibly interesting. Hence the title of the book.

If you have any problems with the links above, just go the Amazon website in your country and type "Incredibly Interesting Psychology" into the search box.

No kindle? No problem. Just CLICK HERE to download Amazon's free Kindle reading app.

Really hope you enjoy the book, I started writing it over 2 years ago! Please let me know what you think and also please feel free to share this post with anybody interested in psychology.

All the very best,

Practical Psychology: Improve Memory By Resting

Research published in Psychological Science by Michaela Dewar et al found that a brief (10 minute) wakeful rest following new verbal learning enhances memory for at least 7 days.

So here's a top tip in the week leading up to your exams - after reading each piece of material you need to learn rest quietly with your eyes closed for 10 minutes in a darkened room - because as the authors note:

"In this age of information overload, there are few opportunities to sit back and rest. However, as demonstrated by our findings, postlearning resting can be highly beneficial if one wishes to retain new information over the long term."

Body Language

(Photo Credit: taliesin, Via MourgeFile)

If you're interested in learning all about body language and non-verbal communication I'm delighted to announce that I have just launched a new website dedicated to the topic.

I had originally planned just to have a body language section on my psychology website but such is the scope and range of this fascinating topic it soon became clear that it needed a dedicated website to do justice to all the things we intend to cover. I say we because I am extremely fortunate to be developing the website in collaboration with Craig-James Baxter.

Craig is a master trainer in reading advanced micro expressions and is one of the most viewed body language decoders in YouTube’s history, having complied nearly 100 body language analysis videos featuring celebrities, politicians, musicians and high profile criminology cases.

If you're interested in learning more about body language the site already has plenty of information and resources available: Including:

  • Body language analysis videos
  • Body language guides
  • Body language tips
  • Body language Q & A
  • Body language articles

And that's just the beginning, we've got some amazing things lined-up, such as exclusive interviews with some of the leading body language experts in the world.

I really hope you enjoy exploring our new website which you can visit via the following link.

Classic Psychology Articles on Kindle

Concepts of Trait and Personality is the latest title to be added to the psychology on Kindle collection.

Originally published in 1927 this classic article by Gordon W. Allport highlights the ambiguity surrounding attempts to characterize personality traits. Having done this, Allport then outlines how the term "trait" can be rescued from the confusion in which he believes it to be embedded.
