Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Presents the brief history and importance of personality study in such a way that makes it relevant to all students, regardless of their background and even to their interest in psychology specifically”

- Colleen Varga, The George Washington University

“A Well written, warm, and engaging. This chapter takes what could be hard-to-grasp concepts and presents them in an easy-to-understand manner.”

-Carol Anderson, Bellevue College

“I really like this book. I think it's biggest strength for me is the approach to personal growth. The book is written in a straightforward, easy to read way. In fact, sometimes it feels like one is reading a novel! The integration of topic content and real life application is wonderful. I think it can be difficult - especially with theories dating back a hundred years - to apply content to daily lives. The layout of the book is pleasing and contributes to the ease of reading it. It's also easy to find topics. Headers are clear and to the point. The Highlights and Key concepts at the end are very useful. The flow of the book is strong. I'm not sure if it's the writing or the organization of content but this is one of the easiest textbooks I have read.”

- Suzan Tessier, Rochester Institute of Technology

“Love it, or I wouldn't have used it. It's the only textbook out there that includes Transpersonal, Sufi, and Buddhist topics, for example. I like the fact that non-traditional perspectives are included, and that there are exercises in each chapter relating to the topics. ”

- Christan Amundsen, North Lake College
