About the Author

Richard S. and Bernice Lazarus have been happily married since 1945. Richard S. Lazarus, professor emeritus of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, was recipient of a 1989 Distinguished Scientific Contribution to Psychology Award from the American Psychological Association. He is the author of Emotion and Adaptation, Stress, Appraisal, and Coping and Psychological Stress and the Coping Process, and editor of the 14-volume Foundations of Modern Psychology series.


"An original and thoughtful book."--Journal of Mind-Body Health "Readers will come away from this book with invaluable tools for better self-understanding--and for handling emotions that can otherwise obstruct personal relationships, productivity at work, happiness, and health."--Kliatt "Very few people can write on emotions with as much authority as Richard Lazarus....It is a very timely contribution, and provides for the lay reader an analysis which is both authoritative and accessible at the same time."--Sexual and Marital Therapy "Compelling....A helpful, clearly written users guide to the human emotion."--Kirkus Reviews "Readers will see not only how professionals decipher the meaning of client's feelings, but also how they themselves can employ new strategies to unravel and cope with their own emotions."--Booklist "A good and solid counterpoint to the many overblown and untested self-help books."--Library Journal "This book allows the reader to learn from and enjoy its contents. It is the product of the loving labor of a husband and wife team....The writing is clear in meaning with vignettes reflecting well on the points made."--American Library Book Review "An original and thoughtful book."--Journal of Mind-Body Health "The Lazaruses provide a roadmap--clear, concise, and informative--to one of the most difficult and fascinating areas in psychology, the emotions. There is no better book of its kind on the market today. A wise and sensitive book, it is both intellectually honest and fun to read."--James R. Averill, University of Massachusetts "Anger, anxiety, compassion and love are complex and often perplexing reactions. Passion and Reason effectively blends case studies with research and theory to produce a compelling description and analysis of these and many other emotions. Richard and Bernice Lazarus are to be commended for providing a unique roadmap of our daily emotional excursions that is both fascinating and easy to read. I enthusiastically recommend their book to anyone interested in better understanding the seemingly mysterious domain of the 'passions.'"--Alan Monat, Professor of Psychology, California State University, Hayward
