Does anyone know any good books related to psychology? Well, not like a textbook but a proper story book...

Need something to read over the summer holidays.

I read 'The curious incident of the dog in the night time' a few weeks back, very easy to read, really helped understand what it would be like to be autistic!

any ideas?
'The Jigsaw Man' By Paul Britton. Hes a forensic/clinical psychologist and its basically about some of his cases. Its really good, so good that i read the sequel 'Picking up the Pieces'.

Another one is 'An Unquiet Mind', can't quite remember who its by...you can find out on amazon...Its about a psychiatrist (sp?) who suffered from depression. I didn't think it was amazing, although i haven't finished it, but it has good reviews, so you could try that one too

Nope, haven't heard of that one...I'm reading a book about Relationships...i think its called 'The Formation of Interpersonal Relationships' or something like that. Its not really a novel book though, quite factual, not really enjoying it tbh

Just go to amazon and type in 'Clinical Psychology' or whatever topic you're interested in, loads of books come up

Definately! no doubt about it, i just couldn't picture myself doing any other course! I should have great grades at the end of A-levels too, which should make it easier to get in to my 1st choice uni (ABB). Picking up some relevant work ex over the next few weeks in a hospital, and reading some psychology related books! (managing a local footie team too, very important few weeks coming up + tutoring a student with special needs in school), so yep, i just couldn't see myself doing anything else, it's much better than sitting in a dark room wondering why 2+2=4 or something! Dont like the biology related modules, but i suppose i could live with them!

Are you in 1st year of uni, or just starting this year?

Is that a general question? Well, i'm gonna answer it anyway! :p:

After my psychology degree, i'm probably going to try and get some work as an assistant psychologist, while studying at the same time, to get the qualifications that will actually allow myself to become a proper psychologist! (Either clinical or forensic)

Love social side of psychology, would prefer either to specialise in Educational Psychology or Occupational, not too sure yet, but as i've said before, i hate the biology part of psych, so that rules out Clinical! Sports psych would be good, but i dont know, maybe...

I'm interested in clinical and forensic - probably the two toughest areas of psychology to get into! But i did really enjoy doing coursework and reading about new research and stuff, so maybe research. I'll just have to see how it goes! I have 4 years to decide!
