Review quote

"This book takes a fresh approach by focusing on the development of the psychology profession." "I would consider using it in the future. Out of the students that are interested in graduate school, most of them are interested in clinical or counseling." "I found the author's writing style to be highly effective and accessible..." "I would consider this book as a supplemental text for clinical grad students as it provides a useful history of applied/professional psychology that it is unlikely they received as undergraduates."

This book is at an excellent level for undergraduates. Graduates will find the book easy reading." "I would definitely adopt this book as a supplemental text for my undergraduate class. It does a very good job covering the emergence of professional psychology in America." "I found the author 's writing style to be highly effective and accessible..."
