This text also reminds me of a general psychology class, sans the history of psych. in that it covers many famous psychologists, i.e. Freud, Jung, Horney, Fromm etc. but it reads like a historiography of each psychologist, I know all about Freud and his theories, tell me how his view of personality is different than the other psychologists with real case studies, this text lacks the case study depth that other Psych. of Personality texts cover.. From a students point of view; teachers, choose a different text!
I would definitely keep this text to use as a reference in future Psychology classes.
