"...an exceptional work which does more than justice to the cognitive science approach to the emotions." Martin Conway, The Times Higher Education Supplement

"...has many of the characteristics of good literature as well as good science." James R. Averill, Cognition and Emotion

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Out There May 16 2001
By Keith E. Stanovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is simply the best book on the psychology of emotions there is. It is written by an esteemed cognitive psychologist who has also written two novels. Thus, this book is scholarly yet a joy to read.
