The 120 or so entries in this volume cover a wide range of topics, including, for example, Alien abduction,
Birth order, Insanity defense, Mad cow disease, Multiple personality disorder, Parenting styles, and Satanic
ritual abuse. Also represented are individuals such as Carl Jung and Dr. Phil. The goal is "to try to counteract
the tide of misleading information about the field of psychology with a concise guide to some things that
the well-informed student of psychology and the interested general public ought to know."

The length of each entry varies from just a few lines to nine or more pages (for Memory) and there are a
few black-and-white illustrations scattered throughout. Nearly all entries include a limited "Further Reading"
list, generally offering both supporting and critical sources. Following the A-Z entries is an annotated
bibliography that includes Web sites.

The book cover states readers will "want to consult this work to understand what is good in the popular
presentation of psychology and what is unworthy of serious attention." That may well be too expansive a
goal as some topics that could have been valuable for both students and lay readers appear to be missing.
Two specific contemporary topics that have apparently not been included are transpersonal psychology
and tissue memory. Another curiously missing topic is counseling. In the entry Psychiatry, there is a
relatively straightforward discussion of the difference in practice between psychiatrists and clinical
psychologists. There is, however, no mention of counseling psychologists, though this discipline is
licensed by most of the individual states and is also certified nationally in the U.S.

Popular Psychology is easy to read, easy to browse, and would be of value in public and undergraduate
libraries that have limited information on this topic. It would also be appropriate in high-school libraries,
where it could be used as a basic reference for class-based study.
