"Admirably comprehensive...It should become a standard reference in the field and most likely the dictionary of first reference for students and professionals." - Ken Kister, Kister's Best Dictionaries "This dictionary was based on interviews with about one hundred psychologists, selected randomly at psychological conventions, asking them what they wanted and did not want in a dictionary of psychology. Every person interviewed wanted as many definitions as possible. More illustrations, biographies, and appendixes were requested by many. They did not want a dictionary that made them move around from page to page to find definitions, nor one that needed another dictionary to understand definitions. This dictionary attempts to meet these needs in that it has more than three times the number of defined headwords, biographies, illustrations, and appendixes of any other dictionary of psychology ever printed in English. - From the preface by Raymond J. Corsini
