A very insightful and accessable journey into why you do what you do. All the analogies are very relatable and Dr Peters does a fine job of making psychology something understandable in layman's terms.

This "book" is just a straight audio rip of a TV documentary. It's still a very entertaining few hours but I'm not sure I'm happy paying for something I could have watched for free on the BBC player or YouTube.

From the Sunday Times top ten best-selling author of The Psychopath Test, a captivating and brilliant exploration of one of our world's most underappreciated forces: shame. "It's about the terror, isn't it?" "The terror of what?" I said. "The terror of being found out." For the past three years, Jon Ronson has travelled the world, meeting recipients of high-profile public shamings. The shamed are people like us - people who, say, made jokes on social media that came out badly or made mistakes at work.

Certainly gives one pause to consider the misplaced outrage of the professionally offended social media subset.
