Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A much more effective work than Beyond Freedom and Dignity precisely because it takes more seriously the tradition (or the historical prejudices) of its opposition."

— Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles Times

"About Behaviorism is an opportunity to match wits with one of the great men of psychology and to participate in some of its great debates."

— James B. Rule, Newsday

"The battle over Skinner's ideas is just beginning. It promises to be one of the most interesting contests of our generation."

— Gail Boyer, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Although I hate reading for school, I have enjoyed this book so far. Skinner is clever. His style of writing facilitates the reader into analytical thinking.
