Format: Hardcover
WOW! This is an incredibly illustrated and beautifully laid out book. The information is fantastic. It is suitable for undergraduate level or early graduate level biological psychology--- its not so detailed that it becomes dry and boring, yet, not too simple that it does the same. Its extremely easy to learn from and very up to date. The author, Dr. Kalat, blends in a bit of humor and the most interesting current topics in neuroscience. I highly recommend this text for your course or for an interested enthusiast. You will not be disappointed!

Format: Hardcover
This was the textbook for a Neuroscience course I took. The layout is quite nice and makes for a good reference book if you haven't anything else. It is written very well and has great illustrations. However, overall I was disappointed that I didn't learn more from the book. I felt it just did not go deep enough into the various topics and many new research findings are not presented. This book was more of an introduction to the area. Having already taken an introductory course, I was not impressed. That being said, if you have not taken an introductory course maybe this book is for you.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on February 11, 2008
Format: Hardcover
The book overall is good. However, sometimes it is hard to understand what the author is trying to convey---it is as if the book is not written for the lay person--but a medical student. I bought the book for a phyisiological psychology class. I have to read over some parts of the chapters for better clarification. I do like the fact that the book came with a CD-Rom and that the book has a companion website.

1 - No CD-ROM even though it was supposed to come with it
2 - Average book organization of the material. I personally hate the material, but as it is for me, it's probably mandatory for you if you're buying this book...

Don't get me wrong, this book is in horrible condition. The spine is dis-attached from the book. It has been highlighted to an excess. But for the price, I will be okay. 14 dollars including shipping... wow I definitely felt accomplished when the kid next to me the first day of class had a used book sticker on his. The price for it used at the bookstore on campus was 150 dollars. Again, I feel completely satisfied for the condition of the book.

I was so happy about this book and the fact that the seller did a great job sending, packaging, and writing in detail the condition of this book. She also kept in in great condition.

This book was a big money saver for me. I was a little worried about how long it would actually take to get it due to the holidays but it came pretty fast. I would buy from this person again.
