Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight (2nd Edition)

We rated this book:


Everything dark and mysterious about Batman is found in the content of Langley’s Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight. Think about it – both Batman and psychology have a way of messing with someone’s mind and they can both be in themselves, or lead to, a dark place in someone’s mind and life. Langley, like many people around the world, is infatuated with the character known as Batman, and given his background in psychology, has compiled and updated information about the man in black regarding his persona and crime-fighting techniques.

The information presented is on par with textbook-level material, but presented in everyday language with the scholarly jargon explained appropriately and usefully, helping the reader to feel they understand post-graduate material without the degree. Regardless of the reader’s interest in the subject, they will get something out of it – maybe it’ll be a deeper insight into a character you thought of as surface-level, a better understanding of a superhero highly acclaimed by many, or an introduction to psychology and the inner workings of one’s mind. Batman and Psychology will make you think, but also has everything spelled out, and maybe it won’t be just about Batman that is speaking to you.
