This was for my college course work and I actually read most of it except 1 chapter because I didn't have time two days before exam. XD

Anyway it's actually a really great read. It even puts a few paragraphs of basics in case you haven't read anything about Personality Psychology before. Interesting stuff. :D

This is a text book. That said, it is very high quality foundational material for studying personality theory.

This is a good book, but some chapters can be applied in the USA only unfortunately.

I had to read it for my University Psychology program it it was really interesting. It contains also a lot of examples which you can see or apply in real life situations. :)
(One of the authors was our Personality teacher.)

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.

Perfectly A-OK intro to personality psychology. Would've liked some kind of example chapter where two or more domains of knowledge are applied to different cases.
Nothing new, but neat.
