"In Motives, Personality, and Society, McClelland reprints a representative selection of his papers in edited form and comments with candor on his own career: the origins of his research in his own background and upbringing and the visions he has had for psychology both as a science and as a basis for humane social action.... What emerges are two singular properties of McClelland's mind: One is a great gift and the other, more individualistic. The first is his capacity for imaginative leaps--his freedom to cross conceptual boundaries.... The second is his deeply ingrained habit of plunging from theoretical speculation to the nuts and bolts of mental measurement and then back again--all within the confines of a single paper or even a single paragraph.... Plainly, [McClelland] is one of the great men of our trade ... he has embodied--one might almost say, caricatured--the very tension between imaginative leap and prosaic factuality on which the venture of academic psychology is bound to turn in the end."-Contemporary Psychology
