What books should a engineering student read to study all about human psychology? (Deception and irrational behavior)
Too many to list. Start with a book on general psychology. Also read personality theory and abnormal psychology.
A 1st step. We don't start learning at this advanced stage of specificity - but for following an interest you could read this paper. To go deeper, always use the references at the end. Read them and their references to build a knowledge base. Keep files and add to them as you learn. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/8827504/Psychology-of-deception.
