    I needed this book for study and it has helped me immensely. It is written beautifully and even though some of the information is tough, it's pretty easy to understand. I would recommend this book above others for ease of use and reading.

      Bought this book specifically for chapters on neurotransmitters - found the `big picture' ideas really helpful. Delighted to discover great Australian authors previously unknown to me!
