Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"To write the 34 chapters, Dr. Kim is to be congratulated on assembling a team of the leading behavior geneticists currently working in the field. ... this is an important contribution to behavior genetics reference literature and is certainly useful for behavior geneticists wanting a readily accessible survey of any topic it covers. Among the striking features of this handbook are the quality of the historical introductions and the high level of scholarship in the chapters. We expect this handbook will be widely used." (John K. Hewitt, Marty Hahn and Christina Hewitt, Behavior Genetics, Vol. 40, May, 2010)

"The handbook of behavior genetics (HBG) includes a diverse and fairly comprehensive compilation of chapters on topics ranging from human behavioral laterality to animal models of aggression. ... HBG an excellent companion text for undergraduate and graduate courses on behavior genetics, recommended reading for scientists seeking an introduction to the research area and a fine reference for the seasoned behavior genetics investigator. ... Overall, HBG is good reading for the novice and the aficionado ... ." (Arpana Agrawal, Frontiers in Behavioral and Psychiatric Genetics, April, 2012)
