Quite an easy introduction to psychology with the “Dark Knight” & a DC comic centric theme , the author goes about explaining mental neurosis and sociopathic tendencies in daily life with Batman and his adversaries as examples .
To me Batman’s psycho profile is insipid and boring , but was more interested in the villainous type namely Bane & The Joker . However at times I found the author was grasping at straws - specially the comparison on Bruce Wayne & Hamlet (Shakespeare) using Freudian & Carl Jung psychoanalytic theories . ( )
