This textbook was wonderful. I went into the class without much enthusiasm for the topic, but there were times when I got through the day's 20 pages without realizing it. Very easy to understand and a great introduction.

finally it's done :)) fave chapter was the biology of mind&consciousness and memory.
In memory page, there's this thing called vivid flashback; when we remember something but we dont even think a single bit about them like for years, like it's flowing by itself. So that thing isn't a real memory yet new creation of stressed brain 0_0 but i hate the test chapter arrr so stressing T_T

p.s.: i didnt reat the appendix lol
I definitely learned a lot from this textbook. I had my nose in this book the entire semester because it taught me more than the professor did. I feel like it did gloss over the child development chapter a little too quickly, though I do understand it is a difficult topic to cover quickly and adequately.

I hated the textbook marginally less than I hated the class. I still hated it a lot. Blech.
