Principles of Biopsychology provides a very good introduction to brain structure and function, progressing rapidly within each topic covered from very basic common knowledge to considerably more specialised and interesting information, but doing so in a way that is clear and easy to follow. It never delves particularly deep into any one area, but then it doesn't claim to (Green clearly states when things are beyond the scope of the book), and in fact the book's mid-level degree of coverage was what attracted me. The information is mostly delivered in the context of the experiments that uncovered it, with due credit diligently given to the primary researchers in each field. Some of the experiments are fascinating - such as Sperry's divided-field work, and I can't wait to read more about Michel Siffre's experiences in two months of total darkness. The book does have perhaps a couple of minor faults: it's now a little outdated, with a second edition certainly welcome, and on a few occasions you're not told until after you've read about an experiment and started to commit its findings to memory that subsequent work has failed to reproduce the outcomes, which hence have been discredited. However, on the whole this is an interesting and accessible book that should be worth £15 of any brain-curious reader's money. Direct your attention its way.
