This is good introduction to motivation theory. Although it is framed around K-12 (and my interest is adults) I found it helpful and useful. The authors maintain a good structure and good organization of the material. They are careful in their use of terms, which in this field can at a times get crossed and confused into each other.

This is a great introduction to the many constructs under the broad umbrella of motivation in educational settings. It is a text book for courses in educational psychology and higher education, but the overviews and sources that it provides would benefit not only those interested in research in these areas but teachers throughout P-16.
