Review "My students like this book and often tell me that this is one text they will keep. I think it is a standout among countless other texts. Garrett, Hough, and their collaborators have produced a very important and effective textbook." -- Dr. Robert Faux "The writing style is great as it is easy to read. The numerous illustrations provide great discussion and teaching topics in the classroom." -- Andrea L.O. Hebb "Each chapter tells a story that the students can follow in a very systematic way with good flow in the writing style. . . . I especially like the In Perspective sections which provide current research insight for students wishing to enter the field." -- Dr. Lorenz S. Neuwirth, "I believe the various ancillaries of the text and website that discuss everyday aspects and applications of biological psychology increase the effectiveness and retention of the information for students." -- Kurt T. Choate "I find the clinical applications most impressive." -- Andrea L.O. Hebb "The perspectives and the visual imagery in the book are wonderful." -- Dr. Lorenz S. Neuwirth, "It really engages the students to look over the supplemental materials and get the most out of their learning experience." -- Dr. Bryant Horowitz "The current events and supplemental information that makes you think and incites critical thinking really put this book at an advantage. Concept checks and other things that allow you to go beyond the scope of what is presented is a plus, and there are a myriad of supplemental options for the student who may not comprehend it as much as others." -- Dr. Bryant Horowitz About the Author Bob Garrett is a Visiting Scholar at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
