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.

Into Psychology? Feb. 5 2013
By Lani K. Meyer-Grubb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A must have for any psych major or anyone looking to find some motivation. Easy to read and very easy to understand.
Sweet Emotions May 22 2012
By J. Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This textbook is great. I am no expert on the subject of motivation, but reading this helped me grasp several concepts I was unaware of. I am a highly motivated individual to begin with so the class I was in that required this textbook was fabulous. I would recommend this book even without the class. It explains a great deal about behaviors, incentives, and why people do what they do.

The only negative thing I have to say is that the web links listed throughout the book are already out of date. Most of them don't go anywhere except an error page. That was kind of annoying.

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.
Thank You for your quick mailing March 21 2014

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.
