Book summary

Readings in Personality contains key articles, rich in both theory and research, spanning the major perspectives of personality in the theorists' and researchers' own words. "The best introduction to the brilliance of influential personality theorists and researchers is through their own words." Operating on this premise, the authors of Personality: Classic Theories and Modern Research have once again struck the delicate balance between a theories-based text and a more research-oriented one. Their new offering, Readings in Personality, presents key articles spanning the major perspectives of the discipline, while providing a set of answers to the question, "What does it mean to be a person?" From Sigmund Freud to Alice Eagly, this reader provides an excellent sampling of the core concepts with which all personality psychologists should be familiar. In the context of a course that aims to give students a strong framework in personality, these excerpts act as a powerful learning tool. [via]
