Review:

This is a matter-of-fact, yet touching book. It is a no-nonsense autobiography of Eleanor Jack (Jackie) Gibson (1910-2002), a biography of her husband, James (1904-1979), and a romance, tough in its love for psychology, affectionate toward colleagues, students, and friends, and almost storybook in relating the life of an academic couple.
Journal of History of the Behavioral Sciences
