Book Description

Review ?The primary strength of the book is that both basic learning phenomena and theories are dealt with more elaborately compared to other textbooks, while still avoiding ?overloading? the students.? (Roald Maes)?The text contains a great deal of detail, yet the narrative remains friendly and easy to follow.? (Mark Davies)?The text is written exceptionally well. It is informative, interesting, and engaging. The stories help to grab the attention of the reader at the very start of each chapter and keep the interest of the student as they work their way through the material.?
