". . .[P]erhaps the greatest strength of the Handbook of Interpersonal Psychology is its sweeping scope. The editors deserve credit for 'nurturing the science and practice of interpersonal psychology in the 21st century' . . . . From theory to practice, from basic to applied research, the book documents the myriad ways in which interpersonal psychology is relevant to contemporary psychology as a whole." (PsycCritiques
