Review

"I just wanted to write and let you know how highly impressed I have been with your book "Behavior Modification Principles and Procedures". I read it for a behavior modification class I took at The University of North Carolina at Wilimington two years ago. At the time myself and other classmates were impressed with how easy it was to understand and how interesting it was to read. Thanks to your book and my instructor Dr. Christine Hughes I gained such a thorough understanding of behavior modification principals and have been able to apply many of them in my workplace repeatedly. It is also one of the few textbooks that I read for pleasure.



Thank you for writing a book that brings students to gain a real passion for a subject area." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear overview of behavior principles March 15 2002
Format:Paperback
I read this book to deepen my knowledge in the area of behavior modification. I especially liked the succinct and clear examples and the discussion of applications and misapplications of each procedure. Thereby, one learns the strenghts and possible pitfalls of behavior principles when applying to daily life. Throughout the book, the author uses easy to understand language and urges the reader to apply the learned principles to his own self-management projects.
Very comprehensive and recommendable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book discussing real psychology July 13 2005
By Ø. Rogne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book has increased my understanding of human behavior greatly.

The method of behavior modification proposed here does not make assumptions about inner mental states, but it discusses what we are able to measure directly.

The book contains tons of examples, not only technical definitions. The chapters are easy and fun to read

3.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy quality Sept. 25 2004
By Susan Zyphur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although the material is detailed, if simplistic, my complaint is with the quality of construction. The cover contains the statement "Includes Tear-Out Quizzes." In actuality, every page is perforated, so you need to be careful when turning the pages to prevent ripping them out. The binding is extremely low quality - after opening the book once, several pages came loose from the spine and fell out. The pages themselves are extremely thin and wouldn't bear highlighting well - in fact, any sort of fluid ink from a pen or highlighter would bleed completely through onto the next page. If only a book with such recommended content had quality of construction as well.
