"The primary strength of the book is that both within and across chapters the author has done a very nice job of starting with foundational topics/concepts and building in a very coherent fashion to broader and higher level conceptualizations'.There is a nice balance between classic and contemporary coverage of cognitive-behavioral and physiological approaches. There is in most all cases a very nice balance between experiment, theory, and everyday life. I particularly like that the author takes the time to explain the weaknesses of any particular theory in a way that allows the student to understand not just how the particular theory is weak but also allows critical transfer to evaluation of other theories." "The principle strength of the text is both its organization and coverage. The authors do a very nice job of building from basic to complex in a way that students will easily be able to manage."From the Publisher:
