Motivational Styles in Everyday Life offers a definitive statement on reversal theory and sheds light on the paradoxes of risk taking, addiction, rebelliousness, and other areas of motivation, emotion, and personality. This articulate, concise, and persuasive volume is based on the understanding that people are essentially changeable and move between different "motivational styles" in the course of daily life. Written by primary proponents of reversal theory, this important book will have broad implications for understanding both normal and pathological human behavior.
