    The role of emotions in interpersonal judgements about health and illness and in social decisions receive particular attention in this book.
    The book is organised in three sections: conceptual approaches to the connection between emotion, mood and judgements; extension of the basic theory behind how feelings affect social judgements; and theoretical models and their application in research.
