    Review quote
    "This is a very interesting introduction to cognitive psychology, distinguished from many of its competitors. It enhances theoretical insight by systematically combining chapters on normal and disordered cognitive functioning. It also continually highlights that cognitive functions are not independent, but instead form an integrated system aimed at understanding the world and producing coherent goal-directed behavior." - Gezinus Wolters, Association Professor of Cognitive Psychology, Leiden University, The Netherlands
