Journal Entry 1 by Azuki from Miami, Florida USA on Friday, September 23, 2022
A totally fascinating read about some famous psychological experiments. I have taken a few psychology classes in college, and always find it an interesting subject, how the researches reveal something that we may not even know about our human nature.

The book starts with some very famous, or infamous experiments that I have read about in school, such as Stanley Milgram's obedience to authority experiment, where one subject is directed to administer electric shock to another person, and the rat addiction experiment, which explains why gambling is so addictive. Slater goes deeper into these experiments, not just by describing them, but by trying to find the scientists and the subjects to learn more about them. She adds a lot of personal touch with each story, making this book more relatable and enjoyable than a textbook (the chocolate though... urgh).
