Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first major biography of America's preeminent psychologist, this book is a riveting portrait of a controversial "social inventor" and entrepreneur whose ideas transformed education, child rearing, and even community life. Hailed as a profound thinker by his legions of followers and vilified by others as a cold manipulator of humanity, B.F. Skinner left a permanent mark on the science of psychology.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [273]-284) and index.
