From a review . . .

“[O]f interest to personality researchers who wish to further understand the functions behind the variability of human behavior.”
Julie Aitken Schermer in Personality and Individual Differences

Prepublication praise . . .

“This outstanding volume features exciting new developments in the scientific study of personality. It reflects the inevitable interdependencies between epistemic, social, and motivational factors that jointly elucidate the fundamental antinomy of human change and stability. A stimulating and inspiring read.”
Arie W. Kruglanski, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland
