This fantastic introduction to Biological Psychology brings the subject to life in a way that no traditional textbook can. I will certainly be recommending it. Brian Wink, Southampton Solent University My first reaction was that it was both imaginative and courageous. Having read it, I would add that it also makes a significant contribution to the available texts on biological psychology. This approach is just what students are looking for.
