Product description


"Each contributor is able to present his or her area of expertise, while at the same time making it clear why competence is important to that area....May very well be an essential addition to any motivation researcher's library, and it would also make a wonderful text for either an advanced seminar or a graduate course dedicated to the topic of motivation." (on the first edition)
