About the Author

Edited by Kathleen D. Vohs, PhD, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota, USA, and Roy F. Baumeister, PhD, Department of Psychology, Florida State University, USA


"Vohs and Baumeister have assembled an impressive range of contributors. Each chapter presents an authoritative viewpoint from leading researchers in the field, and all of the chapters make enjoyable and useful reading. The second edition is particularly timely because of the recent, rapid upsurge of knowledge about the relationship between brain function and self-regulation. This new knowledge is represented not just in specialized chapters devoted to the topic, but throughout the volume, as almost every contributor brings recent advances in cognitive neuroscience to bear. It is difficult to imagine how someone could be a researcher in the field of self-regulation, or a serious student of the topic, without owning a copy of this book." - David C. Funder, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of California, Riverside, USA

"In a fast-developing field with profound implications for understanding and intervening in human behavior, an up-to-date, go-to resource is invaluable. Vohs and Baumeister are eminent scientists who provide exactly that with this volume. Clinicians, prevention specialists, policymakers, and scholars will all find this book a wise and highly useful reference on an essential aspect of human nature." - Thomas Joiner, Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Florida State University, USA

"Temperament is a central construct in the study of human individual differences, yet a volume providing complete, authoritative coverage of the field has been lacking. This exceptional handbook is a 'must have' for researchers, clinicians, educators, and students. The editors and contributors are a who's who of research in temperament, and the scope of the material is unprecedented, ranging from measurement, to biology, to how temperament plays out in everyday life... This is required reading that will guide the field for years to come." - Robert F. Krueger, Hathaway Distinguished Professor, University of Minnesota, USA
