Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Sixth Edition provides a thorough introduction to the basic facts and major theories of human motivation. Throughout the book, the author addresses the types of questions that often arise, such as "Why are some people more organized than others?" and "Why do people dream?" In his exploration of day-to-day human motivation, Franken provides a topical organization that shows students how biology, learning, and cognition interact with individual differences to produce human behavior.

Book News Annotation:

This psychology textbook analyzes several basic motivational systems from a components perspective, the relationship between arousal and performance, the role both positive and negative emotions play in motivation, and the idea that organisms are motivated toward development and growth. The sixth edition reflects new research and adds a section on terrorism.
