Iscussed current personality psychology research or a final comparison of the approaches and how influential they still are todayWith the exception of the last two chapters each chapter is roughly thirty pages in length It may seem a bit funny to split each approach into two different chapters but from the point of view of a student this is actually uite handy It makes it easy to just do one chapter a week along with assignments without feeling overwhelmed with the amount of information Each approach is Moonrise (Snowfall, given an eual amount of background information andood support as well as criticisms for each It is made uite clear in the introduction that varying approaches shine in different areas and no one theory alone is applicable to everything This I think is one of the book s strongest suits as it ives the reader a chance to decide what approaches fit best and form their own opinions on the topic something that I think is important for an academic work as opposed to just force feeding one point of viewI did have a few very small criticisms of the book and I couldn t ive it full marks and most of them are just my own pet peeves that others may not share First was the in text citations which I know are necessary for academic works and are included in the standard format for Psychology They just drive me batty and disrupt my reading skimming over them in the middle of a sentence Especially the sentences that have multiple citations in one I also found at least two Hello, Snow! grammatical errors throughout the book which is actually uiteood considering it s rare to find a work that is perfect but still a slight oversight considering this is a hefty and expensive text bookLastly littered throughout the chapter are tables with A Little Dinner Before the Play graphs personal evaluation tests and short profiles about some important theorists While I loved having all three sometimes the placement was pretty awful I d be in the middle of a paragraph when the whole half of the page would be interrupted with aiant profile about a Mastering the Art of Saying No Without Feeling Guilty: Tips, Techniques and Strategies given theorist and I d have to skip over it to finish the section then back track to read the profile Often the profiles for the theorist would be placed right in the middle of the section talking about their work I think it would make a lot sense to place those profiles at either the very start or the very end of the chapter preferably the start so that the reader canet an introduction to the theorist I know that with printing it s difficult to make everything fit but I just found it bothersome having so many interruptions while reading and having to flip around so oftenOverall not too shabby for my first complete text book The book is of course inherently inhibited by it s format you d have to be intensely interested in psychology and personality theory in particular However if you wanted a crash course on the subject that is well written evenly paced and even has some humor to keep the chapters interesting this book does it pr.
