Dry, especially as psychology texts go, but when one's forced to suffer through it, the later chapters reveal themselves as accurate, extensive surveys of pertinent material, useful for studies physiology. This text is filled to the brink with bold-faced terms, but it's often hard to extract higher-order principles and broad concepts due to haphazard organization.
