`This is a fine text that will apeal to all of us, who in the words of our esteemed BPS President, Tommy MacKay see ourselves as "first a psychologist - 90 per cent; second a child psychologist working in the field of education - 10 per cent". It's good to be reminded of the big picture.. this provides a useful resource for a Service library' - Educational Psychology in Scotland

“The Handbook should be a valuable and sought-after tool for the acquisition of psychological knowledge and research. . . . It is highly recommended for acquisition by libraries in universities on a worldwide scale, especially those that offer degree programs in the discipline. The Handbook is well organized and informative. It can well serve both as a text and a resource book for students of psychology and the social sciences as well as for individuals in the general public, internationally, who are curious about psychological science.”
