From a review . . .

“[I]ntegrates international work on wide-ranging implications of control processes, and . . . provides a concise and clear overview of the topic of control and personality psychology. The authors not only describe relevant theories and empirical studies, but discuss relevant methodological issues and limitations in the field.”
Kristi A. Chin in Personality and Individual Differences

Prepublication praise . . .

“This timely, wonderful, and thought-provoking work tackles the interface between two of the grandest problems of human nature—namely, control and personality. Understanding how individual mental systems differ adds a vital dimension to psychology of control. This book will challenge and inform anyone wishing to appreciate how human beings function and how they differ.”
Roy F. Baumeister, Francis Eppes Professor of Psychology, Florida State University
