More About the Author

Alan Baddeley is Professor of Psychology at York and one of the world's leading authorities on Human Memory. He is celebrated for devising the ground-breaking and highly influential working memory model with Graham Hitch in the early 1970s, a model which still proves valuable today in recognising the functions of short-term memory. He was awarded a CBE for his contributions to the study of memory, is a Fellow of the Royal Society, of the British Academy and of the Academy of Medical Sciences.

Product Description


It is written in an unusually lucid and entertaining way, while nevertheless managing to grapple with important theoretical issues. This is an unusual skill (at least among academic psychologists!) Secondly, Baddeley appears to have fewer theoretical axes to grind than many writers of academic books. As a consequence, he succeeds in presenting balanced evaluations of the theories and experiments he discusses. - Michael W. Eysenck in The British Journal of Psychology

As well as having an impressive list of contents, the book is also extremely enjoyable to read. The author deals with complex issues in an approachable and understandable way and the style is chatty and free of confusing jargon. This is complemented by a liberal sprinkling of anecdotes which both inform and amuse. To summarise, this is an excellent book with no serious rivals in its field. It should be an essential item on the shopping list of all psychology undergraduates. - Tim Dalgleish in the Irish Journal of Psychology --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A highly readable book 4 Jun 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book presents a highly readable summary of cognitive psychology as related to memory. Covering the evolution of theories of distinct types of memory, the interconnectedness of learning, knowledge and memory, as well as related topics, the connectionist approach to memory, the phenomenon of amnesia and other memory-problems, Baddeley manages to convey a feeling for historical and recent scientific research on the entire subject. Excellent references too :-

Baddeley demonstrates an impressive knowledge of memory research, and he communicates this knowledge using a very readable writing-style. This is an excellent book for anyone seeking a solid overview of this area.
