New French translation of ‘Psychology Squared’…
Just a short post this week, I’ve some more international book news!
Psychology Squared, 100 concepts you should know (the book that arguably started this blog!) is now available in… French! As such, it joins it’s place amongst the original UK and US editions, and the more recent German translation . Again, if I am honest this is a bit of a surprise, but a really nice one!
You can check out the French version here, or go back and see the original UK and US editions if you missed them first time around….
On the book front, I am also still cracking away at Social Psychology: The Basics – with the first draft pretty much done :-).I also have some news about my next pocketbook coming up soon as well – hopefully in the next few weeks!
So, lots going on bookwise at the moment 🙂
