4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 4 Mar. 1999
Format: Paperback
This is an advanced, technical work written by a leading theoretician. McClelland examines motivation in the personality and behaviorist traditions. He focuses on the dimensions of personality which drive behavior: achievement, power, affiliative, and avoidance motives. This work explores motivation in the context of trends in society, cognitive effects, values and skills, and training. Provides an enormous bibliography. This work is a classic and deserves careful reading by anyone deeply interested in the subject of motivation. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book is highly comprehensive textbook of the research into human motivation from the perspective of a powerful and innovative thinker. It is indicative of the author that it was out of date the day it was published, but is still a valuable text.

In-depth, covers many critical points and easy to read. 31 Dec. 2013
By RLC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great resource of knowledge, covering many critical topics for understanding motivation and perhaps challenging both past and current research. Although, its content is indepth, it is an easy read for graduate and doctorate students, as well as business professionals, especially those in leadership, HR, or OD positions. To gain the most from it, would suggest alloting the needed time to enjoy and savor its content. Can also be used as a reference.
