    Psychology and Sociology as Applied to Medicine (Alder et al.) is a good shout. Each topic gets 2 pages; very concise, but not very meaty.

    This book's pretty good, it covers most of the bases:

    Still doesn't make psychology any less boring or "stating-the-bleeding-obvious-in-a-million-words" however.

    If you're looking for a health psychology book, Health Psychology by Jane Ogden is great.
