House and Psychology: Humanity Is Overrated
Editorial Reviews
...mixes solid research with entertaining fiction.  I was already a House fan before reading this book, but Id venture to say that readers unfamiliar with the series would also enjoy these essays, the same way they would enjoy a collection of juicy case studies.
  --Elissa Malcohn,
It entertains as it enlightens.  --Barnes  Noble review
This book should be read by all House fans... People who just enjoy a good read will find this an enjoyable book -- sometimes annoying, sometimes funny -- but never dull. Kinda like House himself.  --New Journal of Books
The bottom line is that if you like the TV show, you will probably love this book. If you dont like the show -- or have never watched it -- be forewarned, you probably will after reading House and Psychology.   --
The latest psychological research (including the most up-to-date studies on addiction) is combined with psychological theory. Liberally peppered with scenes and quotes from episodes, it is great fun to read.  --From the Back Cover
Does House use humor to mask his true self?
At what point does an indulgence become an addiction?

How does Camerons past affect all of her future relationships?
Why does everyone lie?
Gregory House is a medical genius and a Sherlock Holmesian figure, but hes also a self-destructive, deeply troubled misanthrope. What is it about this angry, arrogant curmudgeon that is so appealing to us? House and Psychology offers a fascinating psychological profile of Gregory House and his team at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital. Is House a hero or an antihero? Does Wilson need Houses emotional support? Are all of the relationships on this show doomed to fail? The answers to these questions allow us to appreciate our favorite characters more deeply but also serve as a crystal-clear window into our own behavior. Why do we deceive people? How do we define addiction? Can we help others without expecting anything in return? Combining psychological theory with the latest in psychological research, House and Psychology lets us understand what makes this show tick.

Editorial Reviews
From the Back Cover
Philosophy/Pop Culture
Is being nice overrated?
Are we really just selfish, base animals crawling across Earth in a meaningless existence?
Would reading less and watching more television be good for you?
Is House a master of Eastern philosophy or just plain rude?
Dr. Gregory House is arguably the most complex and challenging antihero in the history of television, but is there more to this self-important genius than gray matter and ego? This book takes a deeper look at House to reveal the philosophical underpinnings of this popular medical drama and its cane-waving curmudgeons most outrageous behavior. What emerges is a remarkable character who is part Sherlock Holmes, part Socratic philosopher, part Nietzschean superman, part Taoist rhetorician, and not at all as screwed up as you might think. With everything from Aristotle to Zen, House and Philosophy takes an engaging look at everyones favorite misanthropic genius and his team at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital.
