I looooooved this textbook. So much that I actually kept it, an honour that I gave to only one other textbook from my undergraduate years. It's incredibly well-written, detailed without being tedious or over-wordy, and makes great use of images. I absolutely recommend this text to any student of psychology with an interest in the brain but little experience in biology.
