Heads Up Psychology

Marcus Weeks. DK, $15.99 (160p) ISBN 978-1-4654-1993-4
Filled with intriguing topics, this guide to human behavior highlights ideas central to developmental, biological, cognitive, and other branches of psychological study, while introducing preeminent psychologists and their contributions. The crucial infant-mother bond, how the brain makes decisions and processes memories, mental illness, and the science of emotions are among the topics covered. Attention-getting headers ("Why do good people do bad things?" introduces a discussion of the human capacity for evil) should hook curious readers, while the findings of psychological studies should deepen their understanding of this field. Infographics, sidebars, and photos both create an inviting visual layout and underscore the concepts discussed. Ages 13–17. (Apr.)
