Here are my positives (+) and areas for improvement (-)
+ The author explains all the nomenclature clearly
+ The copy is written in a way that it is very accessible and digestible
+ Very nice graphics that make memorising much easier
+ Very good introduction and summaries in each chapter
+ All important key terms are highlighted
+ Very good explanations on the connection between biology and psychology throughout the entire book
+ Representations of studies that support and oppose theories/hypotheses
- Maps that outline the brain, nervous system, etc. These maps are in Jim Barnes' book but I find Jim Barnes' book way less comprehensive and accessible. Also, Jim Barns doesn't explain the nomenclature.
Mr Kalat, thank you for such a wonderful resource of learning!
