Gifts for The Bookish A Very ShortIntroduction (Oxford, 2000; $8.95)

If the price of the Encyclopedia is beyond your reach, or if you're thinking of a person whose interest in psychology does not quite merit eight volumes, this smaller work (159 pages, including glossary and index), provides a quick and easy overview. Although the table of contents looks like the syllabus for "Psych 101," this is decidedly not a text. As a gift, it won't cause as big a splash as the Encyclopedia, but how much of a splash can you expect for less than $9?
