Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This dictionary contains biographical information on 500 individuals who have made significant contributions in the field of psychology. This is a well-researched, expertly written, and well-structured resource.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a thorough reference that includes basic information, influences, and the overall significance each individual has made to the field. The information is smartly organized alphabetically and allows the reader to access specific individuals easily. The editor's objectives are unquestionably met.
Audience: As this dictionary is quite user friendly, undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and academics will find this book to be a worthwhile addition to their personal libraries. The editors have an impressive academic background which is indicative of their strong knowledge of psychology. The editors and their contributors undeniably demonstrate their expertise and deliver a needed biographical dictionary.
Features: The dictionary includes profiles of over 500 individuals who have made significant contributions to psychology and includes a comprehensive listing of each person's pertinent information including but not limited to nationality, professional interests, education, appointments and awards, and principal publications. Readers will find the inclusion of further reading at the end of each entry to be extremely helpful. The four separate indexes (Names, Interests, Institutions, Key Terms) are not only useful but a grand addition to such a worthy text. The list of acronyms also is quite helpful. It is evident that a substantial amount of time, determination, dedication, and intellect is contained within this biographical dictionary.
Assessment: As both a researcher and professor of psychology, each quarter I assign my introductory psychology students the task of researching and presenting on a notable figure in psychology. I am pleased that there is now a resource that can help aid my students and also recognizes the importance of the various contributors to psychology. I am honored to add this book to my personal library and recommend it without reservation to all academics and students.
