Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This text is VERY detailed. It starts out with a detailed overview of what a theory is and what constitutes a good one. Then each of the personality theories are described in detail, including a biography of the theorist, then the theories are graded based on a scale of what makes a good, functioning theory. It is smaller than a regular-sized textbook, but the print is not too small to make a challenging read for a 40-something student like me. Somehow, the reading seems to go really fast for me. It is written in plain, common speech, with bold-type key words and other important terms and ideas are italicized. There is a breakdown of key elements of the theory at the end of each chapter, and photos, charts, illustrations, etc. throughout the book.

This book is organized in an interesting way- each chapter is on one theorist and discusses all of their views. Some chapters were more clear than others; some just flowed poorly. There were good anecdotes and examples given in most chapters that helped explain the theories, and that was a great help for me.

This book was required for my psychology course. I must say this is one of the best written psychology books that I have read. It is easy to follow and interesting. A refreshing read when your head is buried in so many textbooks all semester.

I wish I had been able to find a used copy of this book so that I hadn't had to pay such a fortune for it. Before I started studying it, I was extremely upset for spending all that money. Now, however, I know it is worth every penny. The authors are skillful writers who
managed to make a theoretical subject not boring at all. In addition, they provided a good amount of information about the lives of each psychologist to help us better understand his/ her theory. I also liked the writing style itself: concise and easy to understand.

This particular book was really expensive to own ($80-$110) and rent ($40-$60).
I ordered the digital copy for much less ($25). Plus, I was able to search the computer for answers to my questions.

This book was purchased for a class. It was easy to understand and very informative. I have a greater understanding of the different theories of personality and it all makes sense now.
