Martin,

Does anyone have a good suggestion for an overview of the psychology of
programming?


I would suggest reading a book on cognitive psychology if you
are interested in mental events happening in less than a 100
second time frame and a social sciences book for longer time frames.

Cognitive Psychology by Eysenck & Keane is a good read.

I attempted to provide an overview of cognitive issues applicable
to programming in:
www.knosof.co.uk/cbook/sent1.pdf

I have done little reading on the social sciences side and cannot
suggest any introductory books.
