Good as an overview
It is supposed to be "psychology for non-psychologists", which basically means it briefly covers the major writings and biographies of famous authors.
Cutting edge? Definitely not. But it's summarizing and terse. It's a starting point to actually read those works explored. If you want an in-depth study, you read the book by the author, not a summary.
Here's the list of authors and the works:
1 Alfred Adler Understanding Human Nature
2 Gavin de Becker The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals that Protect Us from Violence
3 Eric Berne Games People Play: The Psychology of Human Relationships
4 Robert Bolton People Skills: How to Assert Yourself, Listen to Others, and Resolve Conflicts

11 Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention
12 Albert Ellis & Robert A. Harper A Guide to Rational Living
13 Milton Erickson My Voice Will Go With You: The Teaching Tales of Milton H. Erickson
14 Erik Erikson Young Man Luther: A Study in Psychoanalysis and History
15 Hans Eysenck Dimensions of Personality
16 Susan Forward Emotional Blackmail: When the People in Your Life Use Fear, Obligation, and Guilt to Manipulate You
17 Viktor Frankl The Will to Meaning: Foundations and Applications of Logotherapy

50 Success Classics
The 50 Success Classics as well as the 50 Self-Help Classics and the 50 Psychology Classics are all worthwhile for the reader who wants a quality overview of the subjects. I personally found that Tom Butler-Bowden included a good balance of personal observations along with the core details and excerpts from the individual books covered without injecting an overt personal bias.
These books have increased my reading list, but with a clarity and focus to read the books that most interest me most. These books are not just a collection of excerpts from others' writings. They include background information on the authors and the times and circumstances surrounding the writings. These books are entertaining and informative by themselves; but I think anyone who truly has an interest in their subject matter will find them to be useful resources as well are shortcuts to a greater understanding of the subjects.
I highly recommend these books in both their printed and audio forms. The audio versions are read by professional narrators with engaging voices that add to the pleasure of the listening experience. I can't recommend these books enough for anyone interested in learning more of the human experience through the insight from some of the greatest minds to ever put pen to paper.

Would be better in print
This book is a great reference. I now want to read all fifty classics. If you get this audiobook however, be prepared to carry a pen and paper with you the whole time. I would suggest getting a print copy of this and trying to find audio versions of all the books described within.

Great start into the field
i've done the selfhelp, prosperity and now psychology.
this one was not as good as the 50 Prosperity Classics, however this was still a great listen. i'm a psych major so many i had heard about or read, however i took a lot of notes and there's quite a few i'll be looking into more.
this is great to get a broad overview and find books that might interest you more, i gave it 5 stars although i think 4 1/2 would be better fit.
if you are intrested in psychology, this is a great place to start.

Enjoyable and complementary
I found the information enjoyable and interesting. It help me further complement knowledge for my comprehensive exams in clinical psychology doctorate.
I get more out of listening to books then reading them. This book, however, needs more complete online reference as to which great psychology greats were discussed. Audible is weak on providing necessary material that should accompany a book.

Great Synopsis and Intro to "Psychology Classics"
Where does 50 Psychology Classics rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I kind of purchased this as a random buy as I do sometimes ... what a surprised I loved it. Not being a psychology person I found it a great introduction to so many elements and people, it was almost a "tease" of information and has got me interested in listening (and reading to a lesser extend) a lot more on the topic.
I recommend it to anyone who want the 50,000ft view of the full field, despite its length I wished it never ended.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
I would not have changed it, each element the perfect length to educate without flooding.

From an experienced Clinician
What did you love best about 50 Psychology Classics?
Good value for the layperson, student, or experienced clinician. Comprehensive in the scope of the many different systems of psychotherapy (I.e. both pop-psychology, and the more scholarly rigorous psychological therapies), concise yet accurate in describing the core factors of each scholar and practitioner who dedicated themselves to the helping professions. This book also emphasises the commonalities (common factors) of counseling and psychotherapy throughout the chapters.
A good attempt at describing what has been called by clinicians "technically eclectic and transtheorectical" practice.
Easy to understand and a good "sampler" for the student or layperson, and a good reminder for those of us who have been in the industry for many years...
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The synthesis of ideas and theories presented throughout the book.
What does Sean Pratt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Good speaker, presents himself as passionate and interested in the work himself
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes ! Summed up as "Oh I forgot about that dude !" (good and bad ;-)
Any additional comments?
If you're interested in the scholarly field of psychology (emphasis on the little "p"), want to be a Psychologist (big "P"), Professional Licensed Counselor, Social Worker, Teacher, Nurse, or teacher. I'd start here.

Quickest Psych overview available.
Would you consider the audio edition of 50 Psychology Classics to be better than the print version?
Never read the print and would never but in my car? Wow pointed me to tons of further in depth reading AND let me know what I would find in each title.
Would you recommend 50 Psychology Classics to your friends? Why or why not?
Already have. It's a great conversation starter
Which character – as performed by Sean Pratt – was your favorite?
none, no characters. Just the facts and well done.
If you could give 50 Psychology Classics a new subtitle, what would it be?
Remember all that Psych stuff you sort of remember? Well zip thru 50 Psychology Classics and it All comes back with some you didn't know as added spice.

A little disappointed.
I am studying psychology in college right now and was a little disappointed with this one. It mainly gives the writer's own opinion about the psychologists and a brief overview of their life and their work (what they are best known for). Does not give any research results and findings. A good audible.com book I would recommend is "59 Seconds".

Hard to follow
This book seemed to be hard to follow in the listening format. I can't seem to get past the first of six discs- I keep relistening and losing interest.

- Oliver K. Pascal
This is one of the best audiobooks I have heard so far! It provides a good and short summary of 50 psychological thinkers and their ideas. Of course, one cannot expect a whole lecture into the matter since each chapter has only a couple of minutes time. But it is enough to give an overview whether it is worth looking up further information or not.
This title is for you if you are interested in a short introduction to subjects like emotional intelligence, flow, Freud, Eysenck, Frankl, Berne, behaviorism, etc. It provides a quote from the most famous book of the thinker, a summary of the basic principle and a brief biography of each person.
I wished there were more audiobooks like this - with more time for each chapter then.
