Book Description

May 7, 2001 0521000998 978-0521000994
This book is a reader-friendly description of a viewpoint on human behavior which sees all behavior as aimed at attaining goals. A wide variety of topics are treated: ranging from goals, to emotion, to persistence and giving up, to living and dying. Both adaptive behavior and problems are examined. The book blends ideas that have long been part of self-regulation models with ideas that are recently emergent in psychology: dynamic systems and catastrophe theory. It also blends theoretical statement with wide-ranging discussion of issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview of the science behind motivation December 19, 2012
By Garett
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a fantastic overview of one of the most scientifically supported theories of motivation - control theory. Of particular interest should be the chapters on affect, which are absolutely wonderful.
