Hai guys, please list your favorite psychology books so that I may educate myself on why humans behave the way they do and how the overall brain process works.

It's been revised a few times by now, but the Richard Gross book, 'Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour' is a classic introduction and is easy to read. You could probably pick it up 2nd hand for very little cash.

Welcome to ATS and stand by for a telling off by a Mod for posting a thread in the intro section.

One of favourite books, if a bit intense is the neurobiological basis of violence, a truly educating and wonderful book.

If you want something a bit less intense, then Hardwired behaviour by Laurence Tancredi is pretty good.

If you really want to look at the dark side of humanity then talking with serial killers by christopher berry-dee is worth a look.
