  1. I wish I had gone for my PhD in clinical psychology when I was younger. I received my BA in psych, but was lost for many years. It’s newly beginning to dawn on me that this field was my true calling. I am now 36 with two young kids, and feel like that boat has sailed. Glad I found your channel.

  2. I am a BS Psychology student. I find your content very useful, informative and educational. Thank you for creating this channel.
    Much love from the Philippines!

  3. I loved "How The Mind Works" by Steven Pinker. It really opened my eyes to a way of thinking about how the brain functions, and got me started on reading a lot of other psychology books.

  4. One of my favorites that I'm reading right now is 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson. I'm sure you've heard of him, but you really should read that book! Again, old video….but it would be so cool if you reviewed the book on your channel. I'd really like to hear your perspective on it!

  5. I really liked the book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience for understanding how people attain happiness, especially long term!

  6. Can u simply tell me please , which is good book for understanding psycology of any person in hindi.

  7. I am pursuing Masters in psychology. I want to become a clinical psychologist like you. Definitely gonna read these

  8. The Blank Slate: The Modern denial of Human Nature – by Steven Pinker. its a must read written by one of the greatest academics of our age on the topic of nature and nurture.

  9. Still Alice by Lisa Genova was a great insight for me into what it's like having a mental illness, in this case Alzheimer's. The idea of not being able to trust my own mind was very alien to me until I read this, now I think I have a lot more understanding and compassion for mental illness.

  10. Great channel! Here are a few I've really enjoyed: Thinking Fast and Slow; The Power of Habits; Mindset; Willpower; Sean Achor's books; Captivate; Brain Rules (Love how Medina presents material!); Life of Pi; Sapiens (Not exactly psychology, but a great read! I think it helps give background and insights about people from a historical perspective.); Social; D. Ariely's books; M. Seligman's books; Drive – It really depends on where your interests are. My interests primarily are neuropsych, motivation, behavior change, willpower, and resilience. I'm looking forward to watching more of your videos. Thank you for sharing awesome, useful content!

  11. Thank you! I've always wanted to buy good psychology books but dont know where to start. I've read a few psych books but most of them seems to be very repititive so i get tired of reading it.

  12. Does anyone know a psychology book with a mix of neurological that talks about our brain, how it works, understanding it, and how to use it wisely like read or exercise etc.

  13. Thanks for your recommendations! Gonna try them this year. The Tell-Tale Brain is an excellent psychology book which I thought, would be on your video. But on the brighter side, thanks for all your recommendations.

  14. Can anybody recommend me good books about identifying human behavior and body language???????

  15. Awesome. However, I would like to know who are the most influential women in psychology nowadays? Even when you mentioned some here, could be great if you talk about women role in our field.
