The Incredibly Interesting Psychology Book

psychology book

I'm very excited to announce that the kindle version of my latest book will be out very shortly.

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.

As a thank you to everybody who follows me on facebook, twitter, google+ etc I will be making the book available for free for a few days. If you would like alerting immediately as soon as the book becomes available for free I will be sending out details via the free psychology books mailing list. See following link for details.
