This book is an excellent and comprehensive review of the prosocial literature up through 2005 and into 2006. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in the field--it is extremely accessible, even for those with a nonacademic background.

I am a graduate student, and my master's thesis/experiment is on prosocial behavior. I can't even imagine how many painful hours of random Google Scholar and PsychInfo searches this book has saved me. The authors literally did hundreds of hours of work FOR me; I feel like I should send them an envelope full of cash... I won't... but I should.

This book appears to be the material that I had expected. I have, however, found some printing-related issues. When I received the book, I was a little taken back by the appearance of the cover. The text is light, and seems poorly aligned with the book. It looks as if the cover has been scanned from a previous printing, and haphazardly reprinted onto this current paperback edition. In addition, a page of the index has been printed upside-down. I have not read the entire text yet, but these appear to be the only issues. I am reading with caution, hoping that those are indeed the only issues.
