"This latest edition of Kalat is very exciting. There is a magical
thread woven through the entire book making this text a sure winner
among professors and students alike. This thread I am referring to
is the timely emphasis on the quintessence of higher psychological
function: that is the issue of consciousness."
"For Chapter One, the greatest strength is the first thing the author says that biological psychology is the most interesting topic in the world, and how he goes on to justify this position. I couldn't agree with him more and I actually make that statement at the beginning of my course each time I teach it. There IS NO substitute for an enthusiastic position and letting students know that from the outset is TERRIFIC!"
"I would describe Kalat's text as one of the most approachable texts on biological psychology. It covers all the important topics clearly and comprehensively. Students find the text interesting and enjoyable, and most importantly, they learn and remember the material presented."
