Fundamentals of Human Neuropsychology is a contemporary, hugely informative textbook on the subject with a well-organized layout and clear text.

I love psychology, biology, and neuroscience so i'm a bit biased, but i would have honestly read this book for pleasure. I never got more enjoyment doing the required reading for a class (as evidenced by the fact that I never actually did the required reading for my gen chem course...whoops)
