Review:

"A balance among theory, data, and application that takes the reader from 'what is known' to 'what it means' to 'how can you use it.' I like this level for my students, most of whom will enter the workforce after college and many of whom are not psychologists. The book manages this balance without becoming a 'human relations' or 'how to help your career' text."

"I would definitely use this book for my course. . . . It is very applied, and it's a readable textbook. I use a lot of the (workbook) exercises during class as participation activities. Students . . . like the activities and they help them to learn the material."
