This book is essential for all those considering the study of psychology and are not sure if it's just pseudoscience. It would also be great for layperson as it teaches valuable critical thinking skills that will come into play anytime you are evaluating information. This is refreshing reminder of why psychology is such a valuable area of science today. If you enjoy as much as I do the protocol Stanovich encourages you to take when discriminating information, an advanced study of this can be found in Clinical Versus Statistical Prediction: A Theoretical Analysis and a Review of the Evidence.

This is a wise, thoughtful book about the scientific method, and how we use these techniques to arrive at an understanding of the world. It talks about the nature of knowledge, what scientific truth is, and how common misconceptions can lead us astray. In short, the phrase "about psychology" is superfluous; this is a book about thinking straight.

This book was assigned by my professor in Research Method class and it is the first textbook that I actually enjoy reading!

Accessible language, examples helpful in understanding complicated concepts- really great book!

I have read a lot of psychology, and the cynical views of Keith make me long for an unmodern approach. Don't waste your time.I agree with his ideas, but he casts a dim light on the positivity that psychology can bring, he wallows in negativity, just to be a realist. We really need some hope, not despair...
