Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(10), 783. Reviews the book, Psychology & you by David Dempsey and Philip G. Zimbardo (1978). From title to concluding comments, the focus in this book encourages readers to understand themselves and the processes used in studying the self better. The constant perspective–obvious from the section titles–is the reader's viewpoint: How is my personality assessed? What do the principles of interpersonal attraction tell me about gaining/maintaining friends? What are some major concerns in “adult living”? It's a personable book with a decidedly adjustment-oriented approach, nonetheless well substantiated by reviews of recent psychological research.
