Impressions
To be honest I was expecting a different book based on the title. Something probably more oriented about troubles and anxiety. Instead I received a great and enjoyable read to discover through time and experiences how science has come up with nowadays therory about pschycology.

From the best way to raise a child by giving attention and letting him/her cry, from tests on animals to detect the behaviours, it was real pleasant to pass some time with this book.

Far from boring, I've learned cool stuffs about violence, video games, memories, how our brain see things or pschychopath. And it's written in a real fun and interesting ways with pasts examples, historical ones or drawings.

Unexpected and interesting!
