Editorial Reviews


"Handbook of Personality Psychology is highly interesting and readable, comprehensive and authoritative but with depth that takes it well beyond the encyclopedia format...this volume certainly belongs on the shelf of every psychologist who teaches personality, but also on the shelf of every other scholar interested in what is known about what makes people tick."
--Lee Sechrest, University of Arizona in AMERICAN SCIENTIST
"...psychologists working in and with organizations will find many thought-provoking gems of ideas in these pages. I certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in the role of personality in everyday life - which should be everyone!"
--Chockalingam Viswesvaran, Assistant Professor, Florida International University, Miami in PERSONNEL PSYCHOLOGY
"...if you can prop this book up on some hard surface, you will find it a treasure to read. The chapters are written at a level that should be appreciated by graduate students, and all personality researchers can profit from the authors' superb coverage of the wide mosaic of the science of modern personality study."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received this book and I think it is excellent. Chapters start with an introduction or summary, and end with either a conclusion or implications section, which makes it easy to preview the topic without having to read a lot. There are 3 things I should warn prospective buyers, though: it is expensive ($89.95 the paperback edition!), it is extensive (enciclopedic, with almost a 1000 pages), and it is written for "people in the know" (NOT a beginners' book). But because it is so extensive, it has a chapter on every topic on personality psychology theories I could think of. Great as a reference book!

A very comprehensive work on Personality and it's related constructs. Highly rich in content and depth. I had procured it more for the portions of the book on the five factor model of personality and it's facets.

It is an excellent reference guide for consultants and even HR managers who want to know more on the field of personality. A worthwhile investment.
