From the Publisher"this edition of Corsini is an essential, solid, and important reference work in psychology and behavioral science. Recommended for academic and large public libraries." (M.M. Adams; Choice, June 2001).
"Any Library that has made heavy use of the second edition of this work will want to purchase the new edition. For New Buyers, the encyclopedia is recommended for large academic medical libraries." --Barbara Slater (Medical Reference Services Quarterly, Jan 01)
"have done a masterful job of keeping to the philosophy of Raymond Corsini: that the work must first of all be of immediate value and not become a museum piece. They have extensively re-edited the work, removing up to a third of the texts concerning moribund or outdated topics. They have updated about two-thirds of the prior edition and replaced the excised third with new topics. Under the editorship of Corsini, the encyclopedia has always championed an international flavor of topics and this tradition is carried on in this edition as an international array of scholars give their intelligence to this set. Perhaps what is most amazing is the restraint shown by the editors. This encyclopedia , resting on it's famous laurels, could have easily become a bloated and turgid exercise in grandiose exposition. However it instead emphasizes a Spartan utility and keeps its articles tightly written, succinct summaries. This work is strongly recommended even for libraries possessing the earlier editions."
