I am looking for book recommendations on psychology, social sciences and related fields. Both self help and personal account styles but has to be written interesting, some are written very boring.
What can you suggest? Thanks!

ETA medical books as well
Please note how clean they are as well

Not exactly self help but certainly social sciences, I like Freakonomics. Each chapter is on a different topic and written pretty conversationally.

Love this book! Very easy to read and eye opening. He shows how basic assumptions and things people "know to be true" are mathematically incorrect. So fascinating...

Any of Malcolm Gladwells books,
Outliers
Blink
Talking to strangers
Are the ones I’ve already read, they’re all about different social phenomenon.
It’s a mixture of psychology, social observation and journalism. Very interesting to read and his writing is very easy to read.
