What amazes me about this book is its simple style and that no assumptions are made of the reader. This approach makes the depth and breadth of Maslow's theories more palitable, rich, and certainly targeted towards an wider audiance.
Third edition - highly recommended to anyone interested in what human beings strive for.
Maslow's insights are still fresh and valid, his ideas are broad, his concepts are useful, and his writing is very concise and transparent. It's a joy to read. If more psychology and humanities professors wrote with as much honesty, humility, sincerety and wisdom as Maslow, the world would be a better place indeed.
The book contains 14 essays:
Introduction: Toward a psychology of health
What psychology can learn from the existentialists
Deficiency motivation and growth motivation
Defense and growth
The need to know and the fear of knowing
Cognition of Being in the peak-experiences
Peak-experiences as acute identity-experiences
Some dangers of Being-cognition
Resistance to being rubricized
Creativity in self-actualizing people
Psychological data and human values
Values, growth and health
Health as transcendence of environment
Some basic propositions of a growth and self-actualization psychology
This book is well written and outlines the important elements of positive emotional wellbeing. I find it very useful in my work with clients and have been able to apply it in practice. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a less problem-focused approach to psychology.
