From the Back Cover:

“Fresh and comprehensive, this meaty volume provides an unusually deep discussion of individual differences. With the recent explosion of research, the time is right for this wonderful update. Don’t look for this handbook ton my bookshelves—it will be on my desk and in use.”

Robert B. Kaiser, Partner, Kaplan DeVries Inc.

“Some of the world’s top researchers give us authoritative and engaging overviews of the central topics in individual differences, such as personality, creativity, intelligence, genetics and evolution, work, motivation, special abilities and happiness, making this a comprehensive guide for understanding how and why people differ.”

Robert Plomin, Research Professor, Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London

“This handbook provides a diverse multidisciplinary collection of chapters by leading researchers. Domains covered range from intelligence to personality, interests, and motivation—and from basic research on brain functions to real-world implications in the workplace and beyond.”

Phillip L. Ackerman, Professor of Psychology, Georgia Institute of Technology

“There is much in this handbook that does not simply summarize present knowledge but foreshadows the future state of differential psychology. Of use to the beginning student as well as the seasoned psychologist, any serious psychology library should possess this handbook.”

Philip J. Corr, Professor of Psychology, University of East Anglia
