A Student's Dictionary of Psychology by David A. Statt

A Student's Concise Dictionary of Psychology contains over 1900 definitions from ablation to zygote. There are references to words, phrases and eminent psychological figures and David A. Statt has taken into account the most recent developments in psychology to present the definitions in a clear, instructive and concise manner. This book will be an invaluable source of information for students of psychology and its easily accessible style will make it an indispensable reference tool for those in related professions such as health and social work.


I think this is great and really enjoyed the humorous asides in some of the descriptions. The dictionary is exceptionally clear and well written, and the directions to look at similar and contrasting ideas are of great value. The examples were refreshing to read and make terms more relevant to students. - Roz Brody, Brighton, Hove and Sussex Sixth Form College, UK

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
