Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 565–566. Reviews the book, Taste and Development: The Genesis of Sweet Preference by James M. Weiffenbach (Ed.) (1977). This book is made up of 29 contributions to a symposium held at the Fogarty International Center at the National Institutes of Health. This book represents a comprehensive evaluation of sweet preference. The importance of systematic efforts to separate sensory and hedonic factors in behavioral research on taste is a theme that recurs throughout the book. This is an excellent book. The individual contributions are of the high quality to be expected from a group of investigators that represents a cross section of the best in the business. Further, the organization of these contributions is itself insightful, having been arranged both to reflect the state of the art and to point to significant work yet to be done.
