    "As someone who has studied Psychology, I found this book to be incredibly shallow. Dennett seems like he was either being paid by the word, or just writing to read his own words."

It was mainly for parents to learn about with their kids, but having it summed down to a basic level was great for someone who just thought it was one thing."

    "This book deals with a specific element of psychology - people who are psychopaths, especially the ones you might encounter in the workplace. Unfortunately, it sort of comes up short in some ways. There is not enough practical advice on how to deal with these kinds of individuals. Most of what you end up finding here is close to what you'd come up with if you just used common sense and past experience. There just aren't enough real insights in this work."

The Naked Ape is a bit dated, being published in 1967, but is still an interesting book about psychology to read.
