Great text for students9 June 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
This text is VERY detailed. It starts out with a detailed overview of what a theory is and what constitutes a good one. Then each of the personality theories are described in detail, including a biography of the theorist, then the theories are graded based on a scale of what makes a good, functioning theory. It is smaller than a regular-sized textbook, but the print is not too small to make a challenging read for a 40-something student like me. Somehow, the reading seems to go really fast for me. It is written in plain, common speech, with bold-type key words and other important terms and ideas are italicized. There is a breakdown of key elements of the theory at the end of each chapter, and photos, charts, illustrations, etc. throughout the book.

great textbook22 January 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I had to get this book for a class I was taking in undergrad and it was a great read. You learn about popular theorists and it is very detailed. Sadly I rented it and wished I had bought it because we didn't go through every theorist. But I actually liked to pick up this book to read which I can't say for many other textbooks I've had that professors didn't even use.

Decent book7 May 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This book is organized in an interesting way- each chapter is on one theorist and discusses all of their views. Some chapters were more clear than others; some just flowed poorly. There were good anecdotes and examples given in most chapters that helped explain the theories, and that was a great help for me.

Easy read27 January 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
Chapters are short and to the point (unlike most college books that contain a lot of fluff). Will be keeping for reference.
A lot of text and a rough lay out, but still a good required text book18 September 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
Not great but not awful. I wasn't a fan of how this text book was laid out. It made it difficult to refer back to and there was a LOT of verbiage within each chapter. I felt like a lot of it could have been left out.
