'The Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory of Personality is rooted in contemporary neurophysiology of learning and emotion. This text presents an outstanding exposition of the development, data, and direction of RST as well as an excellent critical analysis of the strengths and challenges of the research program. It is required reading for serious students and scholars of personality and individual differences.' Professor Robert M. Stelmack, School of Psychology, University of Ottawa
