This one's a keeper

I bought this book as a textbook for an Intro to Psych class, planning to resell it when I was done with it. But this book is really informative and provides deeper instruction than some other psychology books that read almost like a children's book. If you are serious about learning how the brain works, the nervous system, the different senses, and neurological processes on a deeper level, this book is for you. I decided to keep it instead of reselling it, even though the price is high--first of all, I haven't finished it yet; and second, I will likely need it for future classes, even if this is not the required textbook, because I know the information is written on a college level.
