3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By D. MCDONALD on December 2, 2007
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book gives an extremely complete look at emotions from the perspectives it promises. While the section on evolution is somewhat speculative, the section on biology gives a comprehensive look at how emotions are manifested in the brain, with multiple complimentary models presented in the psychology section. The book is extremely well written and easy to read and understand, yielding an excellent primer on understanding emotions in life. I still find myself referring to it quite often in discussions about emotions months after I finished reading it.

Likewise, I also often refer to the book. My subjective take is that Dr. Plutchik illustrates in many ways how emotions can be modulated using his 360 degree model of emotions. I highly recommend this book.
