Well-grounded in the history of the field, Motivation combines classic studies with current research, while promoting the idea that motivation stems from physiological states, psychological motives, and environmental incentives and goals.


Motivation provides an overarching organizational scheme of how motivation (the inducement of action, feelings, and thought) leads to behavior from physiological, psychological, and environmental sources. The material draws on topics that are familiar to students while maintaining a conversational tone to sustain student interest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Motivation & Emotion May 2 2012
By SJS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The man who wrote this book was my professor, and how the book is written is exactly how he teaches: simple and to the point.I would recommend there being more up-to-date examples in the book to make it easier for students to grasp the concepts, but overall the book teaches exactly what it says in the title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprising good read. July 13 2009
By K. Pring - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I got this as a college book required for a class and it turns out to be very well written, easily understood, and surprisingly easy to read. It covers all past and present theories of motivation and the final two chapters deal with emotions, because emotions are still difficult to explain even by professionals. Overall, a good buy.

Text book was in great shape and I really appreciate the quick mailing - I needed it for the class I was in and having it made a world of difference - online textbooks just do not work for me.
