Psychology book nook reviews - 7-3-07

I don't subscribe to PsycCRITIQUES, but I recently signed up for the APA email alert service...so I can see what books, videos, etc. have recently been reviewed...just in case I can find some elusive free time to read.

Below is a summary (lifted from the APA web page) that describes this service. This is followed, in turn, by this weeks list of available reviews from this service. You would need to subscribe in order to view the reviews. I'm hoping to provide this information on a regular basis.
  • PsycCRITIQUES® combines weekly releases of reviews of very current books and popular films with a searchable database of reviews going back to 1956. The database replaced the print journal Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books in 2005. Enhancements include weekly releases of approximately 20 reviews of very current books; the ability to browse by title, publication year, and author; and the ability to search the PsycINFO records for precise retrieval from thousands of reviews. More than 900 current reviews are published annually.
