This text examines the major topics of motivation by exploring the way biological, behavioural and cognitive factors influence it. The new edition has been completely reorganized and revised to reflect new directions in the field and current research. In addition, there is greater emphasis on the explanation of ideas and synthesis of the research studies. Two chapters on Emotions and Depression have been added, and new sections include coverage of behavioural neuroscience, Siegels conditioning theory and Peel's work, the power motive, and getting people to accept challenges. Revised chapter opening questions specifically address each chapter's content. This book should be of interest to degree and diploma students on courses of behavioural science in departments of business, management studies and social sciences.

Dr. Robert E. Franken is a professor Emeritus at the University of Calgary, with a research focus on better understanding curiosity and exploratory behavior. He is currently living part of the year in Vancouver, British Columbia and part of the year in the Rocky Mountains. Much of his research addresses understanding sensation seekers who are motivated by the need to experience varied, novel, and complex sensations and are willing to take risks in order to experience such.Review:
"I've been teaching motivation for about 5 years, and this is the first book I have used that presents a balanced view of theories and applications. I like the book a lot."
"...interesting and informative. ...Well-organized and engagingly presented."
"This is a very well written, and technically engaging book. The book reflects an extensively well-thought-out and organized approach to the study of motivation. The author's voice is heard and the questions asked and answered by the text are compelling."
