Some chapters were decent, some really just weren't. I found that most of this text was dry and focused on so many individual theories that I could hardly keep up. I'd say a suitable way to improve the text would be to include more relevance. I found that the only chapters I was even slightly engaged while reading were the ones that provided relevance and gave real world examples instead of just explaining theory. This provide a sense of personal engagement, and put the theories into action.

I teach an upper division college course with this textbook; the course is, "Psychology of Motivation." I continue to use the 2002 Fifth Edition, because the newer Sixth Edition is 98% identical to the Fifth. First, the fact that this book has reached six editions shows that it is highly successful; it is the most popularly chosen text for motivation courses. EMOTION is a large topic in the book, with five chapters. Students have responded positively to the book. As is true with other upper division textbooks in psychology, the book has a "plain appearance," lacking color printing, and other features that are common with lower division textbooks. There is no study guide, and no review questions at the ends of chapters. Some topics overlap with other psychology courses: these topics are sleep, drug addiction, sexuality. One of the most interesting specialized topics is the sensation-seeking personality --- people who love sports that are "dangerous to life and limb." Physiological topics are also covered ---- most interesting of which is the role of the brain's amygdala in negative motives and emotions ---- the amygdala is the brain's seat of prejudicial beliefs.

A very good, highly readable text. I would recommend this even to non-students or people who are not enrolled in a Psy course. Interesting and well-written.

very helpful for human motivation psychology

Hard to evaluate a textbook, but this one I have an opinion about. The text itself is pretty standard fare, but the online features really drive the concepts home. I am in a CD-ROM/Distance Learning Course and find that the extra "browsing" really suites my learning style and doesn't feel like hard work. I enjoy the supplemental reading and it is really helping me with sources for my midterm. At first, I balked at the price, but now I am really thankful for the online section.

It arrived on time in the stated condition. As for the textbook: it got me through the class but wasn't a very good book.

Do you like to know about motivation and what keeps us interested in everyday life and practice? I would recommend this book for reading and a guide!
