Editorial Reviews

Book Description

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 (the theory is specific in type, but has diverse applications)- 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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My class only uses some chapters for discussion but I found the entire book indispensable for my understanding of the field of self-regulation. I am also relying on it to write a bulk of my term paper.

Pros:
1. Most of the theories they suggested ended up being correct
2. Graphs are easy to understand + provide a better understanding of concepts
3. Encompasses most of the field
4. Succinct and well organized

Cons
1. Can be abstract and difficult to understand

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.
