    So I'm considering doing psychology at uni, despite not having done psychology for my A-level (because it wasn't an option). So I'm just wondering if anybody can recommend me a good introduction to psychology book that just goes over the basics.

    I do Philosophy, which surprisingly contains quite a bit of psychology, so I read the 'Very Short Introduction to Psychology' by Gillian Butler which I found helpful

    Look online on Amazon and look for 'intro to psychology' books and read the reviews. They're really cheap. I bought a huge one for a matter of pennies though I haven't looked at it much yet but it may be helpful for my studies in future (just started my degree). I have a study skills book too which is helpful.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I had a look and managed to buy a used one for around £2.50 with free postage and the reviews are pretty good too.
