About the Author:

David Dunning is Professor of Psychology at Cornell University. An experimental social psychologist, Dr. Dunning is a fellow of both the Association of Psychological Science and the American Psychological Association. He has published nearly 100 scholarly journal articles, book chapters, and commentaries, and has also served as an associate editor of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. He is also the former Executive Officer of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, an international organization with over 5,600 members, as well as the Foundation for Personality and Social Psychology. Much of his research has been supported financially by the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Science Foundation, and was recently reviewed in his book Self-insight: Roadblocks and Detours on the Path to Knowing Thyself (2005, Psychology Press).

Review:

"We humans are the most profoundly social species on Earth, and social motives therefore play a vital role, helping us navigate the complex social world in which we live. Dunning has assembled an outstanding collection of chapters about three important social motives: belonging, helping others, and gaining and exerting influence and power. Each chapter casts an illuminating and cutting-edge light on longstanding questions about the nature and impact of these social motives. Researchers and students will find this volume a valuable resource for information about existing research and ideas for future research." - Harry T. Reis, Professor of Psychology, University of Rochester, USA

"As this excellent volume makes clear, motivation doesn’t come only from physical or economic needs. It flows as well from social factors that importantly shape human responding. What makes this book so valuable is that each set of contributors shows us that the impact of these social factors is both powerful and predictable." - Robert B. Cialdini, Author of Influence: Science and Practice
