Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The author does a remarkable job of being fair, comprehensive, and above all objective in his treatment of each of the three theories.

Dr. Nye's writing easily understandable...I like the fact that even though the chapters are concisely written, they include all the high points of the major theoretical orientations presented.

Overviews, examples, real-world applications, and commentaries present the essential ideas of three important figures in contemporary psychological thought. An introductory chapter points out differences among the three perspectives, and a conclusion provides comparisons on specific issues. This fifth edition includes discussion of cognitive psychology and Ellis' rational-emotive behavior therapy, plus a review of a 1962 dialogue between Rogers and Skinner. For undergraduate and graduate students in psychology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
