Reviews

"Overall, I was impressed by the breadth of coverage of Handbook of Traffic Psychology as well as the inclusion and representation of several international sources. Although there are some chapters that are less comprehensive in scope, they all contribute to the overall effort. The editor should be commended for gathering an impressive list of authors who, in my opinion, adequately fulfilled his ambitious goals for the handbook."--PsycCritiques June 27, 2012, Vol. 57, Release 25, Article 8
