This is a text book. That said, it is very high quality foundational material for studying personality theory.
I had to read this for my Intersession class, and it was an incredible read! I learned so much about myself, and why people behave and react they way they do. It was easy to read because the terms weren't too technical. Despite being a textbook, it's definitely a book I would recommend if you wanted to learn more about yourself (and why those people in your life drive you crazy)! =o)

Easily read for some complicated subject matter. Very straightforward and parallels well with lecture formats. Definitely made studying for midterms and finals much easier.
Not a fan of personality psychology. This text did not help.
