50 Psychology Classics is no less than a journey through the development of popular psychology, exploring ideas and concepts about human behaviour. Who we are, How we think, What we do, it describes some of the most complex ideas and presents them in a digestible and engaging narrative, including iconic figures like Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Ivan Pavlov Carl Rodgers, Fritz Perls, Milton Erickson to the more contemporary writers such as Martin Seligman and Daniel Gilbert

Who Would Benefit From Reading This Book and Why?

If you are a coach who is confused with the array of literature around human behaviour and want to explore the root of the popular concepts we use in our practices then this is the ideal reference point.

Particularly relevant to you is the section on Thinking Better, Feeling Better, Happiness and Mental Health taking you through Martin Seligman’s Positive Psychology to the Cognitive Psychology revolution introducing the idea that our thoughts create our feeling and developing a mechanism to take control of our emotions and our lives.

I found this book to be a thoroughly enjoyable read as many of the concepts explored lend themselves to personal application and provided a many ah-ha moments. As a coach I think I understand myself a little better as I worked through Gail Sheehy Passages to Isabelle Briggs Myers, Gifts Differing to David Burns, Feeling Good
