Paragon House is proud to announce a brilliant new anthology reaching into the depths of human nature, Tales of Psychology: Short Stories to Make You Wise, by Psychoanalyst Alma Halbert Bond.

A story that breathes life is incapable of death. It reverberates; it haunts and disturbs the reader. Tales of Psychology belongs to this select genre. It contains all the excellent qualities, "extraordinary observations, insightful remarks, moving passages and wonderful lessons "necessary to make one be both attendant and gentle with life." G. Marudhan, Critique Magazine

Tales of Psychology: Short Stories to Make You Wise is a stunning collection of short stories by both award winning and unknown authors that ranges from the most exalted in human character to the most depraved. Dr. Bond combines this collection with her astute psychological explanations of the meaning behind each story. Warren Thurston, owner of Boggle Books, writes, To read the book is to take a tour of a psychological gallery, with Doctor Bond orchestrating what the reader will see next. Her choice of stories brings forth images too powerful to ignore. Primeval urges that shake the reader from their normal state, taking them on a journey to a world hidden deep within their consciousness. This book will indeed provide many hours of reading pleasure.

These stories bring to light truths of human nature through fine writing. From alcoholism to defense mechanisms and mental retardation, Tales of Psychology presents life-changing literature. You will recognize different aspects of yourself and those around you within the pages of this collection. Tales of Psychology is a subtle and rich collection that will lead you into the heart of thought and beyond. It is the perfect volume for everyone from students and professionals to those with curious minds and is also highly recommended to teachers and professors of psychology for an original and elegant method of teaching in the classroom.

The following is a sampling of stories housed within Tales of Psychology: A Small, Good Thing, by Raymond Carver, The Middle Years, by Henry James, Silent Snow, Secret Snow, by Conrad Aiken, The Region of Ice, by Joyce Carol Oates, Paul's Case, by Willa Cather, and My Apology, by Woody Allen. Each story is followed by a discussion of the psychological principles revealed. Dr. Bond's astute analyses add depth and understanding to the words of these great writers.
