Book Description

November 3, 2010 1412981689 978-1412981682 Third Edition

Brain & Behavior: An Introduction to Biological Psychology showcases our rapidly increasing understanding of the biological foundations of behavior, engaging students immediately with easily accessible content. Bob Garrett uses colorful illustrations and thought-provoking facts while maintaining a “big-picture” approach that students will appreciate. Don’t be surprised when they reach their “eureka” moment and exclaim, “Now I understand what was going on with Uncle Edgar!”

Praise for the Second Edition of Brain & Behavior:

"Great book- excellent instructional design and graphics with practical applications."—Robin Steed, MA, LOTR, Louisiana State University Health Science Center

“My students liked the organization of Garrett. They thought it was easy to read and an appropriate resource for this course.” —Charles Long, University of Memphis

“I have been searching for a book that would thoroughly treat all of the concepts in brain and behavior while also being easy enough for the student to read without becoming overwhelmed. I think that the Garrett text might be an answer to my problem.” —Natalie Ceballos, Texas State University

Review

“I have been searching for a book that would thoroughly treat all of the concepts in brain and behavior while also being easy enough for the student to read without becoming overwhelmed. I think that the Garrett text might be an answer to my problem.”

(Natalie Ceballos)

“My students liked the organization of Garrett. They thought it was easy to read and an appropriate resource for this course.”
(Charles Long)

“The key issues in teaching biopsychology are getting students focused on the material and making it interesting enough for them to be willing to read the text. Garrett does a good job of assisting with this process of making material meaningful and practical to students.”
(Susan A. Todd)

“Garrett delivers…using every day applications to provide a context for making dry material much more interesting.”
(Patricia Bach)

I will make this rather short and to the point. The organization of the materials reads more like a narrative than a textbook. The reader is forced to make sense of the writer's complete lack of structure and categorizing. There were numerous typos and as well as sentences in which all of the words contained no spacing between them. This was a rather difficult course, and the author/publisher failed to assist in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good psych book October 17, 2009
By Sci Guy
Format:Paperback
Very detailed, and rarely boring. The only problem from my perspective is that it was too detailed sometimes, and the course I was taking was not as in-depth. Other than that, excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brainy. January 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The textbook is very well organized and put together. The images are well-chosen and are quite supplemental to the text. The text is quite simple to understand and the extra study questions have been very helpful for class. For someone who is not going to become a neurologist and merely wants to dabble in the subject, this book has been endlessly fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and Engaging May 15, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this to be an interesting, engaging, well-arranged text book. It took a complex subject which easily could be confusing and laid it out in a nice, easy manner. The course felt easy for me because this book was so efficiently designed that learning was almost effortless. This is an achievement in any subject, but is particularly appreciated in a subject like psychology, where many texts have multiple theories for many phenomena confusingly splotched together on a page without strong overarching narrative. Exceeded my expectations, reading assignments in the book were never a drag, no gristle just lean knowledge injection straight into your brain.
