From the reviews:

"The book Personality and Temperament in Nonhuman Primates ... presents current research in the emerging field investigating nonhuman primate personality. ... It contains excellent references and would be an outstanding text for an upper level undergraduate course or graduate seminars. The book provides a survey of personality research and methods comprehensively, and could serve as a superb foundational text for any personality course focusing on human or nonhuman animals. It is also a `must' for anyone studying nonhuman animal personality and particularly primates." (Francine L. Dolins and Duane Rumbaugh, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 57 (26), July, 2012)
