Domjan's book provides a comprehensive and systematic introduction to elementary forms of learning that have been the focus of research for much of the twentieth century. The book covers habituation, classical conditioning, instrumental conditioning, stimulus control, aversive control, and their applications to the study of cognition and to the alleviation of behavior problems. Biological constraints on learning are integrated throughout the text, as are applications boxes that relate animal research to human learning and behavior. The book closely reflects the field of research it represents, in terms of topics covered, theories discussed, and experimental paradigms described.

"The author has added many interesting new and modern theoretical approaches without compromising the older theories within the context of the data available at the time."
"Domjan's book is extraordinarily well organized. He has taken this work through several revisions, and his efforts have paid off. ... Domjan succeeds at providing brief, clear descriptions of most of the important approaches to the principles of learning."
"Excellent narrative style, very readable. It is by far the best for my students."
