Written in an infromal, conversational style, Carver and Sheier engage students by helping them understand how various perspectives of the field of personality can apply to their own lives.   For sophomore-level undergraduate Personality courses.   This book describes a range of viewpoints that are used by personality psychologists today. Each perspective on personality is presented in a pair of chapters, introduced by a prologue. The prologue provides an overview of that perspective's orienting assumptions and core themes. By starting with these orienting assumptions, you'll be placed right inside the thought processes of the theorists, as you go on to read the chapters themselves. Each chapter concludes with a discussion of current problems within that theoretical viewpoint and the authors' analysis about its future prospects.  The result is a book that is engaging and enjoyable as well as informative.
