"Finally, an empirically based, critical examination of personality theories."
This book is comprehensive yet accessible for undergrad students, and the critical insights provided are extremely important to help them develop their own critical thought, as well as better understanding personality theories.
Excellent compilation of the main used theories to study personality. Matchless historical perspective about the development of the study of personality. Very good book.
This is an excellent text book offering a comprehensive view of personality theories. My opinion is that this may be the only text book required for anyone studying not just psychology but other topics such as counselling, mental health and nursing.
All of students attending psychology course have to read this book. People who want to read this book do not have any trouble to understand what it says. Eventually, it is well designed and qualified.
Easy to follow and teach from
The book is well-written and accessible, but is a bit dated - for example doesn't really acknowledge current thinking about 'subpersonalities'.
I adopted it for last semester (spring) & will be using it again this fall 2012 because it has contents for graduate level students.
An excellent and in-depth text that provides information across a wide range of perspectives. Recommended for general wider reading to students.
This textbook is reasonably priced and has excellent, up to date content.
This is a brilliant pieace of work; very relevant to our integrative course.
A veery useful book to inform my sessions, but too complex for nursing students to read as just one of many on a reading list. this decision is all about the students abilities not about the book.
I found the book well laid out and very informative.
A very useful book for my students which I am adding to my reading list
