Social Psychology Aronson 8th

(I've read a newer edition, not sure which though, just to keep that in mind.)

Great intro into Social Psychology! I've read it out of interest, not because I had to (okay, to be fair, the topic is related to my work) and although it took me a while to read, I really enjoyed it to the end.

Great intro into Social Psychology! I've read it out of interest, not because I had to (okay, to be fair, the topic is related to my work) and although it took me a while to read, I really enjoyed it to the end. Like with every science book you can't take everything at face value. Not all studies mentioned and cited are well done and perfectly convincing, but all in all it gives a very good overview about the field of social psychology, its beginnings and its status quo.
The reason why I give five stars is, before all, because I truly believe that knowledge in social psychology is an absolute must and that this book does give all the necessary information in an informative and entertaining way!
Knowing about social psychology teaches us about ourselves, about how we behave, or how others might use our instinctive behavioural patterns to manipulate us into doing or believing something they want us to do or believe (commercials, political statements, etc.). But also, experiments like the Stanford Prison Experiment or Milgram are incredibly important to know if we want a chance of preventing those situations in real life. And these things happen in real life all the time and are the reason for many tragedies happening.
So I definitely recommend to read this book, because it just makes you that much more aware of the big situational influence on people's behaviour and what to do about it.
