This book was bought for my University studies but is actually really interesting otherwise. Not your typical textbook format. Great academic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 6 Aug 2013
By Sophia
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Absolutely fantastic book. Written by one of the leading behavioural geneticists - Robert Plomin. Everything is explained brilliantly and it makes genetics seem much easier than it actually is. One thing to mention is that if you don't know much about genetics, you can't just skip to a paragraph in chapter 7 and expect to understand it. The book explains things as it goes along so the first few chapters need to be read in order to understand what is mentioned later on. However, as the books is easy reading this wasn't a problem. I used this book for the third year of my degree as my main reference for behavioural genetics and I got a 2:1 so it is a very good book! There has been a newer version that has been released, however it is much more expensive and this book explains most of what is in the new book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, great condition. 22 April 2013
Came In a beautiful condition, so glad I didn't spend all the extra money buying it new. Really helpful book in explaining the complicated terms and concepts of behavioural genetics and for those of you revising for essay-based exams for university, it has loads of extra references that you can put in to save you fishing around on google scholar for ages. Would recommend this book definitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is surprisingly not dry 26 Jan 2013
By All-access Customer - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
it's actually quite interesting. there is a ton of great information in here for novices and for the very experienced. i'm still a genetics idiot (there's so much to know) but this is interesting and informative
5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent series of editions, but get the latest edition if you can afford it. 20 Feb 2014
By Robert Zich - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Scholarly, thorough and easy to use. An exemplary book on an important topic. Older editions are sound as of the date of the revision. The latest edition is, of course, best but very expensive.

This was my required textbook for a heredity and behavior class. It was a great introduction to behavioral genetics, with short chapters and written in a way that was easy to follow. Will probably keep after class is over!

The book came in a very timely manner and was exactly what I ordered! The correct edition and everything! The book was in good condition and only visible signs of use is a moderate amount of highlighting. Overall, excellent!

It's dense, but as far as text books go, this is one of them. Not a terrible read if this is your kinda thing.
