"The Handbook of Consumer Psychology, edited by Haugtvedt, Herr, and Kardes, is a superb collection of chapters on the most important topics in consumer psychology, written by the world's leading experts on these topics. Chapters from Kassarjian and Robertson's (1991) edited Handbook of Consumer Behavior proved to be a mainstay for consumer behavior PhD seminars for a decade. I expect the Handbook of Consumer Psychology to play a similar role for established researchers and graduate students over the next decade." – John G. Lynch, The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
"This handbook assembles a superb slate of top researchers who expertly explore the field of Consumer Psychology with impressive depth and breadth. From classic perspectives (such as information processing, attitudes, motivation, and behavioral decision research) to up-to-the minute cutting-edge research areas (from well-being to neuroeconomics), this handbook has everything one could ask, and more. This book is truly a must for anyone with an interest in why people consume." - Joseph Priester, Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California
