MEDIA REVIEWS

Although there exist very many introductory textbooks on psychology, this book stands out. This is the single best introduction to psychological science in existence. The author enlivens the text with concrete examples, interesting anecdotes, and historical excursions. All of this radiates a love for the field and a love for science. - Eric-Jan Wagenmakers, Department of Psychological Methods, University of Amsterdam, AmsterdamThis is a hefty volume. It has to be — it is nothing less than a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute review of research in cognitive psychology. Talsma combines breadth of coverage and approachable style with nuance, depth of knowledge and historical context to satisfy newcomers to the field and the most demanding expert. This will become an instant classic and an indispensable resource for everyone interested in human cognition. - Paul M. Corballis, PhD, Professor, School of Psychology, University of Auckland, New Zealand
