"This is the best, most comprehensive text of its kind that I have encountered in more than two decades of teaching this material at the graduate level. The chapter authors are acknowledged experts who offer cutting-edge coverage of their respective topics, with an excellent balance of theory and research. My students are challenged by the text--which I take as a compliment to the editors--and acquire appropriate mastery of this broad field from it. I recommend this book highly for both master's and doctoral-level students."--Lee P. Berrigan, PhD, Department of Psychology, California State University, Sacramento
"With this edition of the Handbook of Personality, the vibrant state of theory, research, and application in personality psychology is abundantly evident. The editorial team has brought together an all-star cast of chapter authors who offer state-of-the-science discussions of classic and contemporary topics in personality psychology, accessible to scholars and students alike. Truly, this is a landmark work."--Mark Snyder, PhD, McKnight Presidential Chair in Psychology, University of Minnesota
"Three renowned editors bring together personality psychology's preeminent scholars to create what will surely become an indispensable reference work for investigators, educators, and graduate students. This extraordinary volume captures the breadth, depth, vigor, and vision of the modern study of personality by offering leading-edge perspectives on fundamental questions. Topics such as religious experience and subjective well-being, which have not been included in previous editions, reveal the impressive scope of the field--and of this volume. The latest in theory and research, woven into each chapter, is sure to inspire both seasoned scholars and the next generation of personality researchers."--Howard Tennen, PhD, Department of Community Medicine and Health Care, University of Connecticut
