This is a review of A Theory of Human Motivation by A.H. Maslow. The target audience of the book are individuals who are looking to expand their understanding of Maslow’s theory of motivation. The book is an in-depth look into Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and how it pertains to the motivation of individuals.
The strengths of the book are that it is written in a way that it can easily be understood by the average person and also that it is well written, without any noticeable grammatical mistakes. In addition, Maslow also uses commonly encountered examples to not only help the reader understand what he is getting at but also to help the individual see how it truly pertains to each individual.
The weaknesses of the book are the lack of detail and depth in regards to the testing of the theories; not all individuals are equal when it comes to their motivations and secondly, the layout of the book could be better, the sub-topics seemed to run all together and in my opinion, one column instead of two would allow for larger print
There have been many reviews in approval of this book, while there have only been two reviews in disapproval of this book. One of the disapproved reviews states that this book is not what they expected it to be, and that “it does not have the triangle.” This response must lead others to wonder as to whether this reviewer even read the book, due to the fact that the entire book was based directly in conjunction to the triangle (hierarchy of needs). The triangle itself is on the front cover of the book, however, it is not posted again anywhere else in the book. The triangle instead is written about within the book.Read more ›
I found it to be an adequate and informative springboard from whence to get ideas for further in depth study and readings.
As far as I am concerned, it has achieved it's purpose.
I'd recommend this to anyone in search of a higher understanding of himself or herself or others.

Short on pages, long on insight. This is, in my opinion, one of the most poignant views on what drives Human Beings in modern society.Published 28 days ago by kelly sanders
This book is great, only complain I have is that it only explains the first few sections of Maslow's pyramid of needs. Still recommend and say superb.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
Fairly short, but it goes into some of the complexities that some people criticize about Maslow's hierarchy, and it is by Maslow, so straight from the horse's mouth.Published 7 months ago by Gina M. Harris
