Psychological Reference Books and Self Help Guides
Articles, Books and Links, Oh MY!
At the request of several people that have their works posted here, it was suggested that I throw a list of books, magazines and links. These resources span a great many decades, from a wide variety of places both from the United States and Abroad.
This list compiled is the result of my studies and that of the loyal posters that have taken their time to share their thoughts and experiences.
Though it does not exclusively delve strictly into the world of Nonviolent Psychopathy, it is nonetheless, a great list to learn psychology from. To, perhaps, gain some knowledge into the world of human behavior: breed some understanding of one another, shed some light on murky places. To learn and maybe be inspired.
This list is the result of many people. Those that cared enough to share things that made a difference to them.
Books: *hopefully by subject)
UNDERSTANDING HUMAN BEHAVIOR (24 volume set) 1974
PUBLISHER: Columbia House.
This series is sometimes still available on Amazon at anywhere between $29.00 and $99.00.
AN: I was twelve when I ate this series up. It was fantastic reading. It opened doors for me, as I am sure it did many. I’ll have to read it again and see what theories have changed and what has held the test of time.
Thank you my dear sister Holly: you allowed me to read these books. Not sure what you thought of a much younger brother taking such an interest way before his time. I will always be indebted to you for this. <if I could only remember the text books you brought back from your time at CWRU, which I always read with great eagerness.>
