Book Description

May 19, 2006 0495090794 978-0495090793 9
Dr. James W. Kalat's BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY is the best selling text in the market because of its extremely high level of scholarship, clear and occasionally humorous writing style, and precise examples integrated throughout the text. Throughout all nine editions, the goal has been to make biological psychology accessible to psychology students, not just to biology majors and pre-meds. The goal has also been to convey the excitement of the search for biological explanations of behavior. Kalat argues that biological psychology is "the most interesting topic in the world," and this text convinces many students. Try-it-yourself activities in the book and on-line help illustrate phenomena and procedures described in the text. Accuracy, currency and a clear presentation style have always been the trademark signature of this text and this Ninth Edition has taken these qualities to the next level. An extremely skilled teacher, Dr. Kalat has written a text that not only speaks to today's students but to their professors as well. Accuracy, currency and a clear presentation style have always been the trademark signature of this text and this Ninth Edition has taken these qualities to the next level.

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but not great December 4, 2007
By Auj
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.

A Kid's Review
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars No CD-ROM, overall an average book April 3, 2013
By James
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Book for school September 5, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.
