As a Psychology undergraduate student taking Animal behaviour as a module for my final year, this book provides a useful insight into the more psychological explanations into animal behaviour. I have not needed to refer to the whole of the book, but unfortunately the sections that I have read have sometimes taken me longer to read due to numerous printing errors or poor grammar, making it almost impossible to understand some of the sentences within the book. However, it does provide good empirical evidence throughout the book to support the theories it discusses.

This book would be a suitable text for an advanced course in animal cognition. Undergraduates can appreciate it in small doses (probably not the whole book though). Master's and doctoral students will love it. Shettleworth provides an impressive review of spatial cognition, temporal cognition, and social cognition. She tends to emphasise the learning theorists view of things, and in so doing sometimes de-emphasises the role of cognition, representations, and the environment. The details are handled skillfully and accurately. There isn't much on the big questions though, such as whether causal cognition and/or intentionality might be important and possibly human-specific developments in the evolution of cognition.

this was a suggested core book for my Cognition module of my degree.
the book itself is very good, it helped me pass my course, it has plenty of examples and references for all types of cognition.
i personally found certain aspects repetitive, but that is mainly because i already knew them so they were going into more detail then necessary for me personally.
the book is a good read and a must have for anyone studying cognition, whether it be animal or human. as to understand cognition fully even in humans you need to study how animals learn and adapt.
weather you have a very basic understanding of cognition and need to advance your knowledge or have a good understanding and need examples of different types of cognition, this is a book you will appreciated.
i will say for a book it is a tad on the expensive side, but it is worth it, certainly was for me, without it i wouldn't have passed the module, due to lack of examples, so couldn't be happier with it.

Very good book. A bit expensive but overall I found it useful. I sold it later on for the same price so it works out good in the end
