"Kalat's writing is, as always, rich in content, yet lucid in presentation and design. His choices as to which material to include, and which to ?drop? are without fault; and the weight he gives to each of the parts is just about perfect. . . . His has always been the best text in the area, hands down!"
"The author's use of first person helps to give the book more of an adventure travelogue feel than a stuffy textbook feel. I think the book communicates well the fact that biopsychology is a dynamic and empirical field in which important and fascinating new discoveries are being made continuously. Furthermore, I like how the book emphasizes the topics and issues that relate directly to the students? lives."
"Kalat's book, in all its revisions, has remained the best book available. I have often thought of writing a text in this area, but it has never been ?necessary? because of Kalat's work. If I had to pick a single strength, it would be the conversational tone of the writing. This a scary topic for many students, and Kalat makes it accessible." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
