Description:

An irresistible look within the mind and behind the hit TV drama, HouseWhile House is a smart medical drama and Gregory House faces countless ethical quandaries as a doctor, what makes the show unique is that it's much more deeply rooted in psychology than in medicine. At its core, House is a show about the mind and human behavior. Gregory House is a medical genius and a Sherlock Holmesian figure, but he's also a deeply troubled misanthrope. What's going on inside the brain of this beloved, arrogant, cane-waving curmudgeon that is so appealing? House and Psychology tackles this question and explores the latest findings in brain science research, defines addiction in its many forms, and diagnoses dysfunctional relationships, all using test cases at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital. Offers a revealing psychological profile of Gregory House and his team Uses the latest psychological theory and research to answer questions ranging from "How does House handle addiction?" to "Why does he act like such a jerk?" Features contributions from a group of world-renowned psychological experts who also happen to love HouseEssential reading for every House fan, House and Psychology will help you discover the extraordinary mental universe of your favorite brilliant, bombastic, bile-belching doctor of medicine.
