First thing when you open this book, is a two page chart outlining all of the personality theories. Now that is what I like to see!

Well I was so pleased when I received this book. It is totally amazing. I loved the outline of the theories of personalities that appear when I opened the book and saw another outline when I closed the book. What a great quick reference!! Very well done. I am very pleased with the contents of the book. It certainly is well written and covers the material I will need for my college class Theories of Personality. Great book!!

This book is in perfect condition, and I have learned a lesson that I will not have any of my school books delivered in an inexpensive manner to save money. This was my fault, I should have paid to have it delivered in 2 days.
Thank you for the book.

Your product came well before the delivery due date. The textbook came in very good condition as promised as I looked it over carefully. I would recommend you to anyone else when it comes to purchasing a product you have to offer. As I am taking classes online, I now have the peace of mind that I am now ready to take my next course soon enough. Again, thanks for you quick service and the acceptable condition my textbook came to me in!

Through reading this book I learned how family history, the time of day you was born, the environment you live in and other factors, has a lot to do with one's personality. This book should be read by those in the medical, mental health, education and other fields. This is to better understand why people in part do what they do because the are who the are.
