Abstract:

"While one of the oldest-studied topics in psychology, temperament remains one of its toughest nuts to crack. Rothbart leads the reader along a compelling personal and scientific journey during which the many factors that combine to make us unique individuals -- biological, social, and developmental -- are carefully assessed and elucidated. Rothbart's writing style is clear and engaging. This book not only reflects the current state of the field, but also, I suspect, will shape its future"--Mark H. Johnson, Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK.
