Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 638–639. Reviews the book, Progress-in Experimental Personality Research, Vol. 8 edited by Brendan A. Maher (see record 1980-01028-000). Maher has once again assembled a fascinating smorgasbord of erudite, scholarly, and highly varied contributions in the personality research area. In their diversity, these chapters are both a delight and an abomination to a prospective purchaser. It is highly unlikely that the average reader will have a major interest in more than one or two of these six presentations, which average 56 pages in length. It's books like this that keep Xerox in business. Clearly Maher has put together a first-rate volume that again shows his uncanny flair for picking authors who are ripe to do their thing with style and considerable skill. The book provides us with a very real and significant contribution to the psychological literature in, the area of personality research. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
