MEDIA REVIEWS
The style is very clear and readable: it made me want to continue reading. I would recommend this for students who find the subject particularly difficult, and who struggle to get a firm grasp of the basics. -- Dr Laura Brown
I really like the writing style - easy to read but contains the necessary information for first- and second-year students. The spotlights are really good and make it possible for interested students to dig deeper. -- Dr Hakan Fischer
Students commencing a university course in psychology are often thought to find the presence of `statistics' the most unwelcome surprise, but it could be argued that the presence of psychobiology can be just as alarming for others. For these students, getting to grips with sophisticated biological science, as well as the complex methods used to measure and assess our biological ability, can be a very challenging matter.
All this is worth mentioning because the book under review deals with such anxiety by explaining things in an admirably clear manner, furnishing excellent examples and moving from the elementary to the much more complex elements in such a way that should see it becoming one of the standard textbooks in this area. -- Deaglan Page, School of Psychology, Queen's University Belfast, Ireland
