About the Author:

Alexandra W. Logue, PhD, is an internationally known behavioral scientist. Her general research area is learning and motivation, with special research interests in higher education, choice behavior, self-control, and food aversions and preferences. She has published over 130 books, articles, and chapters on higher education, quantitative models of choice behavior, and food aversions and preferences, and has served on the editorial boards of many prestigious journals.

Review:

"Based on solid scientific research on eating and drinking behaviors, it presents an overview of the current understanding of controversial topics in a personal, accessible, and conversational style. Its goal is to create informed consumers who understand why we eat and drink the way we do... The extensive references for each chapter and the author and subject indexes provide the opportunity for students and facult to devel deeper into questions of interest." -A.P. Boyar, CUNY Herbert H. Lehman College, CHOICE

"The book is an authoritative view of very important research about the psychology of eating and drinking. It serves as a superb overview of scientific literature without hidden agendas. The author makes the material accessible to readers of all backgrounds by relating the research to her own experiences with food and drink. Everyone can benefit from reading this book." -- Linda Bartoshuk, PhD, Bushnell Professor, Food Science and Human Nutrition, University of Florida

"Alexandra Logue is masterful in distilling a mountain of work on eating and drinking into an engaging, coherent, and captivating picture of these essentials of human life." -- Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, Dean, Sanford School of Public Policy, Professor of Public Policy, Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, Duke University

"Alexandra Logue’s now classic text is the place to begin exploring how our psychology―as distinct from genetics--influences human taste preferences, eating behavior, and food choices. Logue deals with the evidence available to help explain anorexia, obesity, alcoholism, and the near universal craving for chocolate. Does psychology matter in food choice? Here’s where to answer that question."--Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University; Co-author of Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics
