From reviews of Motivation in Education:

“I find it essential that students have access to such strong representations of the basic theories and work in the field of motivation. . . . This book goes a long way toward reinforcing the voices of experts who make data-driven decisions about how to foster motivation. . . . There are no available books [on motivation] as excellently crafted as this one.”               

—Theresa A. Thorkildsen, University of Illinois at Chicago

 

“This book is certainly the most comprehensive treatment of motivation. There are several others I have perused but they often take a certain approach to motivation whereas this book covers ALL approaches. The authors present a very complete and unbiased treatment of the literature.”   

—Daniel H. Robinson, University of Texas

Robinson, University of Texas   “I very much like the application pop-outs and the case studies, which illustrate applied examples of the concepts. I really think that this helps students to have a better understanding of the concepts the text is presenting. I also like that the text discusses specific studies.”        —William Watson, Purdue University
