iwishyouwouldonlytakemeasiam asked: It's worth a read even if you are not massively into child psychology. I love psychology in general and the book works through and explains many of the main theory's in psychology as well as obviously a highly developmental factors as well. Have you read any books on psychology? If so I would appreciate some recommendations.
I’ll definitely have to check it out then. I’ve read a few books so far, mostly textbooks. However, my favourite Psychology book is Incognito by David Eagleman. It’s technically more to do with neuroscience, but it explains many psychological theories in a simple, concise manner, with plenty of interesting real world examples. Right now I’m working my way through Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, which has been brilliant so far.

I haven’t actually, although a quick amazon search for it has awakened my interest. So far I haven’t researched much into the field of child psychology, so this might be a great place to start, thanks for the recommendation.
I created this blog about two weeks ago, and I figured it’s about time I said something about myself, and this blog. My name is Jamie, and I’m a second year Psychology student at Birmingham, England.
With this blog, I’m aiming to do 3 things. First, I want to expand my own knowledge of Psychology. Second, I want to show as many people as possible just how exciting and interesting the world of Psychology is. Third, I just want to have a damn good time researching and writing about all the crazy stuff discovered about the human brain.
I’ve had an unbelievable response so far to this blog, way more than I could have anticipated. Therefore, I’m desperate to keep it running as best as I can. However, during the next month or so, I’m going to be having difficulty just getting onto the internet, let alone finding the time to write up any posts. I’ll try my best, but I doubt there’ll be many posts this August. I will try to research as many interesting bits and pieces I can find though, so when I come back in September I’ll have a whole bunch of things to talk about.
Thank you so much for following me and liking my posts, as I said, this response has been amazing.
