    Review quote
    This is a very neat little book. It's as close to a page-turner as one can find in this area-it's clearly written by an experimenter who speaks from experience. I was very happy to have reviewed it and I would recommend it to anyone interested in solid, comprehensive psychological research. Daniel Cerutti, Duke University
