Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

I really like this book. There is a newer version out now. This book has a lot of info about how the brain and the body work together to create our psychology.
