This new edition has successfully captured the mystery of human personality and the efforts of psychologists to unravel it. Cervone enhances the coverage of contemporary researching findings in the field. The chapters have been streamlined to present more balanced coverage of the competing theories. It integrates theory and research to emphasize how theory and research inform one another. Psychologists will also find that rich case material is used to clearly illustrate the theory.

"Though revised often and deeply over the past 40 years, say Cervone (U. of Illinois-Chicago) and Pervin (emeritus, Rutgers U.), the psychology textbook still presents the major theoretical perspectives on personality, integrates theory with research and case material, and provides the basis for comparing the theories."
