It seems that many other books in psychology do not offer information in such a broad and defined view to the wide content that creates Psychology as a science. I would recommend this book to someone instead of the For Dummies or Complete Idiots Guide series. The logic behind many concepts are shown in cartoons, pictures, and presentations. I would say this book, in many aspects, is descriptive.
This book includes the following:
- Diseases and disorders
- Cognitive science (learning, developmental stages, etc.)
- neuroscience/neurophysiology (schizo mind, neural connections)
- Psychophysics, which describe how the human body interprets information through their senses.
(THIS IS NOT IN A LOT OF PSYCHOLOGY BOOKS, VERY NECESSARY TO LEARN)
- Psychobiology and evolutionary genetics
