Reviews

A very impressive achievement and one not matched by other books in this area. Very accessible, the book is written in a friendly and authoritative style. The sources of relevant further reading will be helpful to both students and to teachers who are not psychologists themselves. - Rob Lewis, Head of Psychology, Gwent Tertiary College, UK
