Take a break this summer with illustrated academic reading

Published by Yolanda Koscielski

With most summer days bringing hot and sunny conditions, reading dense, academic texts and treatises may not be piquing your interest at the moment. Why not take a break with some lighter introductions to academic topics? The library now owns a handful of illustrated guides to popular academic topics available for check-out or download. Some of these beach- or park-friendly titles include:

Introducing Jung: a graphic guide

Introducing Ethics

Introducing Mind and Brain

Introducing Existentialism

Check out other illustrated books in the Introducing... Series.

Another great introductory series on academic topics is Oxford's Very Short Introductions collection. These short, but dense, books are a great way to get a good overview of a new topic. SFU Library owns nearly 500 different Very Short Introductions, which cover many academic subject areas, including Psychology titles, such as: 

Anxiety: A Very Short Introduction

Forensic Psychology: A Very Short Introduction

Thinking and Reasoning: A Very Short Introduction

Get a jump start on the fall 2019 term with these Very Short Introductions!

Happy summer reading!
