Psychologist Jeremy Dean is the founder and author of the popular website ‘PsyBlog’ http://www.psyblog.co.uk /), with over 64,000 email and RSS subscribers and upwards of 1 million monthly hits from 700,000 unique visitors.
The site analyses–with wit, clarity, and erudition–psychological studies that are relevant to everyday life. Topics have included how memory works, self-control, methods for boosting creativity and the psychology of work.
Dean launched PsyBlog in 2004, when he noticed a dearth of smart, readable news for those who like psychological insights backed up by science. Read the world over, the site has been featured in the following media outlets: BBC News, The New York Times (‘Health Around the Web’), The Los Angeles Times, Wired, NPR, The Guardian, and The London Times.
Dean’s first degree was in law but after a career in the Internet industry he began studying psychology. He has now racked up two higher degrees in psychology and is currently working towards a doctorate.
His current book is called ‘Making Habits, Breaking Habits: Why We Do Things, Why We Don’t, and How to Make Any Change Stick’.
