Just love Sean Pratt's narration. He is the best I've come across. I'd buy the audio just because of this! A great recap for me as a therapist. I'll listen to this many times in the future.

It was like reading a concise dictionary. Since I'm not a therapist I found it very interesting and boring, depending on the subject.

A well constructed synopsis of key theorists and movements. Presented in an objective way and bringing a contemporary context to different works. Great attempt at synthesising work which so often is seen through a binary lens. Beneficial to both students and experienced practitioners as well as the general public

It‘s a nice overview over some of the fields/authors in psychology but some aspects don’t seem up to date. For instance, it quotes a book about the differences of the male and female brain and presents this as the prooven cause of gender differences while leaving out countless studies in social psychology that show how girls and boys are treated very differently even when they are still infants, which influences how these infants brains will be shaped. It‘s still an interesting and well researched book.

Exactly what it says it is. A good way to start into psychology (maybe a little knowledge of the subject is needed) or to learn about new unfamiliar works that paved the way. Recommended!

This is an fascinating summary of the 50 classics. After listening to it, one feels one has wasted time by not reading these classic. Sean Pratt is an excellent narrator. His voice and style makes it even more wanting. From Start till end, one feel the resolutions to read most of these classics. It would be great of Sean Pratt can read some of these classics for us.
