Biopsychologyclearly presents the fundamentals of the study of the biology of behavior and makes the topics personally and socially relevant to the student.
The defining feature ofBiopsychologyis its unique combination of biopsychological science and personal, reader-oriented discourse. It is a textbook that is “untextbooklike.” Rather than introducing biopsychology in the usual textbook fashion, it interweaves the fundamentals of the field with clinical case studies, social issues, personal implications, and humorous anecdotes. It tries to be a friendly mentor that speaks directly to the reader, enthusiastically relating recent advances in biopsychological science.

This book was for my Psych 367 class at Ball State University. It was an educational book that taught me a lot of different aspects of the human mind. It was a pleasant read because the author made the language more on the level of a conversation with him instead of trying to be necessary high-brow which a lot of other texts tend to do. This ease in the text made it easier to read and a result was able to finish the course in a more timely fashion than I thought I would be able to do. When teachers pick the correct text for a class it greatly helps the students and this is a shinning example of that.

This is an easily read text book. It is well organized and gives a very nice overview to the subject matter. Flashcards on the accompanying Cd help with learning new terms.
