Beginners books for economics and Psychology for fun?Watch
There's a good microeconomics course on edX and you should be able to find a course that you like
Also Oliver Sacks & Vilayanur Ramachandran are two excellent neuropsych authors, they talk about a huge range of stuff and it's pretty accessible to people without previous knowledge.
I'm not planning to study Economics or Psychology at university at all (I want to study Sociology then a 2-year law degree), but I'd like to get a decent understanding of them as I'm just intrigued by Economics and find Psychology interesting. I covered some Psychological research in AS Sociology Unit 2 Sociological Methods and Education, as we used some of the studies in regards to how ethically they were carried out, but nothing in real detail. Does anyone have any suggestions on what books to read gain some basic understanding of these disciplines? I'm also open to watching documentaries on these topics, as I know there is a documentary on the Stanford Prison Experiment.
You can't go wrong with this.
