There seems to be a movement to suggest that his work is / was no longer valid. I read this book not long after it was published and about 20 years after his work was introduced to me at university. For me, we should build on his work and not dismiss it. Might save some of the malaise we have at the moment... and ease the mental pressures that seem to be affecting society at some cost. A book that one does not need to read cover-to-cover. One can dip into it.

Loved the conversational style of this journal. Fantastic resource and a great read. Can't wait to explore some of his thoughts even more. So happy I finally got the opportunity to read it. Definitely worth it.

Grandioso libro! No deja de aportar en ningún momento sabiduría para todos los aspectos de la vida. Excelente aporte por Abraham Maslow.

A seminal work onhuman behavior in the workplace-now completely updated"At last! We have all been quoting Maslow for years and to now have such an excellent compilation of his seminal thoughts on management and organization comes like a timely gift from heaven. The values and principles he taught decades ago are even more relevant today." -Stephen Covey, author, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People."Maslow's book is a readable, impressionistic masterpiece that extolled the virtues of

Abraham Maslow's genius comes through in his ability to reflect upon our human condition and his formulating theories to help us better understand each other. His Hierarchy of Needs was very influential for me and helped me better understand people's priorities according to their needs. I often look at other societies through these lenses in order to make sense of their thought process.

Overwhelmingly dull. Sad, because I love Maslow's other ideas. Not that he doesn't make good points here, just....ugh. Had to slog through it.

This is the sort of book you never stop reading...Just read it over and over...sometimes to remember things forgotten in prior passes, other times to find things missed.

Great book. Sad that not much has change since Maslow wrote this. He apparently said that he feel that his journals were written for his grand-children. Perhaps another few generation I would said.
