Overview

From published reviews? "[a book]?which all clinicians who work with children will find of great interest, and one well worth dipping into. In particular, the review chapters give an elegant and authoritative state of the art account. The book is well-edited and, throughout, the relevance of the work presented, to real children and their families, is readily apparent. It should certainly be in the library of any hospital children?s department." Child Care Health and Development
"This thorough and authoritative work probably addresses all the current major issues on temperament in childhood. The readership of this book should include those with either a clinical or research interest in temperament. However, those with a particular research interest will find it an invaluable baseline from which to work. The issues of methodology and validity or research findings are addressed in many sections and it is this critical approach which keeps the text interesting as well as informative. ?In summary this would be an excellent book for psychologists who have a particular research or clinical interest in temperament?" Clinical Psychology Forum
"?The book is well written and well structured. It is divided into six sections, each beginning with a major overview chapter and followed by shorter contributions developing further theoretical issues and reporting current research findings. The publisher?s claim that this book is ?an essential addition to all institutional and departmental libraries used by researchers and professionals working in the area of infant and child development? is well founded. This is not only an excellent reference book but very interesting and stimulating reading. Paediatric & Perinatal Epidemiology
