From the Back Cover
This introduction to the theories of personality introduces readers to the rich history of psychology and practical information that helps students understand their own lives and their relationships with others. Using a theorist-by-theorist approach, this text summarizes the major theories of personality and emphasizes that the best understanding of personality comes from a variety of viewpoints. Theories representing the psychoanalytic, sociocultural, sociological, and existential-humanistic paradigms are offered as different--yet equally valid--ways of approaching the study of personality.
Theorists covered include: Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Alfred Adler, Karen Horney, Erik H. Erikson, Gordon Allport, Raymond B. Cattell and Hans J Eyserick, B.F. Skinner, John Dollard and Neal Miller, Albert Bandura and Walter Mischel, David M. Buss, George Kelly, Carl Rogers, Abraham Maslow, and Rollo Reese May.For anyone wanting a comprehensive understanding of personality and individual differences. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I like the content of this book. First borrowed from library as a reference book, then was impressed with it that I purchased it. It has clear and concise descriptions on each of the major personality theory, with the theorists' biography, the main theme of their theories, and their positive and negative aspects.

Having never used the book before I didn't notice the difference and much to my shock I got the 1994 edition even though I clicked on a link in the 2006 edition. What a scam. Yes, I should have played closer attention but Amazon should not be engaging in a bait and switch.
