This book is a unique introduction to behavioral genetics, which offers unparalleled insights into how the topic is probed using evidence from humans and the major model organisms. It also demonstrates the major impact that neurobiology is having on our understanding of the field, to give a true depiction of behavioral genetics in the 21st century.

This is an extremely accessible and fun to read textbook about molecular genetic research into behaviour and psychopathology. The authors have made great efforts to make the subject matter that can be 'scary' to students, very easy to read. Difficult concepts are explained clearly and the text is full of entertaining anecdotes that are likely to help the students remember the factual content of the chapters. - Dr Essi Viding, University College London
I found this informative and brilliantly-written. I think students will enjoy learning from this resource which is current, engaging and witty. Two of the best researchers in the field have come together to share their most interesting and exciting career-stories. - Dr Alice Gregory, Goldsmiths, University of London
Without question, this is, by far, the best account for non-specialists of how genes influence behaviour. - Michael Rutter, Psychological Medicine
These titans of research have crafted a helpful introduction to the relationship between genes and behavior, an introduction that is also unique for its interdisciplinary approach to genetic questions. - Debby Tsuang and Andrew David, The American Journal of Psychiatry
