Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Organized according to the six main domains of modern personality psychology, David Funder's market-leading text shows students the field as it exists in the present. By incorporating significant coverage of the great theorists of personality psychology throughout, the book helps students understand how the field developed. And by showcasing the questions driving the research of today, enables students to see the exciting future of the discipline. For the Fifth Edition, every chapter has been updated. A new illustration program supports visual learners with updated versions of the book's much-loved cartoons and new in-text features to help students visualize and remember concepts. The text covers classic theories of personality as well as all the latest findings, including up-to-date coverage of the biological domain, new material on cross-cultural psychology, and expanded treatment of positive psychology. As always, is a book that students will read, enjoy, and remember, with a writing style that is engaging, distinctive, and humorous.
