Taking the Proverbial
The Psychology of Proverbs and Sayings
A fascinating, amusing and highly readable look at the psychological truths and misconceptions behind the proverbs and sayings we use every day. Is the grass really greener on the other side? Does familiarity breed contempt? If at first you don't succeed, should you really try again?
Dr Geoff Rolls, author of numerous psychology texts and a lecturer at Peter Symonds College, examines these and other pressing questions.
