"It is difficult to imagine how someone could be a researcher in the field of self-regulation, or a serious student of the topic, without owning a copy of this book. Vohs and Baumeister have assembled an impressive range of contributors. Each chapter presents an authoritative viewpoint from leading researchers in the field, and all of the chapters make enjoyable and useful reading. The second edition is particularly timely because of the recent, rapid upsurge of knowledge about the relationship between brain function and self-regulation. This new knowledge is represented not just in specialized chapters devoted to the topic, but throughout the volume, as almost every contributor brings recent advances in cognitive neuroscience to bear."--David C. Funder, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside
"After reviewing available texts for a doctoral graduate course in cognitive and affective processes, I selected the Vohs and Baumeister text, as I found it to be comprehensive, applied, and current. Students have found that the contributing authors present the material in a manner relevant to everyday life as well as clinical application."--Tim F. Branaman, PhD, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Texas School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Dallas
