5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book 18 Mar 2014
By Leeanna
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I actually bought the wrong book and sold it. This was the wrong one that I am reviewing now. But an ex professor of mine wrote these books. He was a great lecturer at university who made me feel inspired and motivated through his passion for the Biology of the brain, which is truly fascinating.

Brilliant book, which has come in very useful for assignment work. It is easy to understand, useful diagrames to explain certain parts. Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best book I've bought on psych nursing lately, 1 May 2012
By hyblaean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
with only one disappointment. The diagrams and charts are too small. Even maximized to as large as they will get, they are a pixelated mess and impossible to read. The text is perfect and exactly what I was looking for, though. If it had been better translated into the Kindle, it would have been a 5 star book.
