Attractively packaged, this book is thematically structured, covering all the key areas of psychology - perception and action, memory, cognition, affect, the social self, personality, anxiety and sleep. This Book Has Issues explores the marvel of the human mind by looking at the myriad ways in which it fails to work. Scientists have long exploited breakdowns and failures to learn more about phenomena, and sometimes even to put them right.This Book Has Issues assembles a wide variety of intriguing psychological issues - instructive errors, interesting mistakes, and revealing vulnerabilities - in order to show just how much we can learn from our failings. It is divided into eight sections covering the major components of common experience and how they go wrong. The dysfunctions covered arise in perception, memory, emotion and cognition, but also in interpersonal relationships and identity issues. Personality disorders, the ravages of anxiety and stress, and problems sleeping are also treated. Tests and exercises abound throughout the book. Each chapter includes a feature spread on a psychologist of note. And each chapter ends on a positive note, with tips, help, and exercises to promote healthy functioning in each domain.
