Review

"Valuable for those interested in psychology, education, sociology, or human genetics. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above, including professionals." (Choice, 1 December 2011)

"That a fresh and comprehensive statement on current understanding about individual differences! This meaty volume provides an unusually deep discussion of personality and mental abilities like IQ and emotional intelligence, digs into their biological roots, and explores their importance at work, in relationships and in health. With the recent explosion of research linking these topics, the time is right for this wonderful update. Don’t look for this Handbook on my bookshelves – it will be on my desk and in use.
Robert B. Kaiser, Partner, Kaplan DeVries Inc., USA

Some of the world’s top researchers give us authoritative and engaging overviews of the central topics in individual differences, such as personality, creativity, intelligence, genetics and evolution, work, motivation, special abilities and happiness, making this a comprehensive guide for understanding how and why people differ.
Robert Plomin, Research Professor, Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, UK

This handbook provides a diverse multidisciplinary collection of chapters by leading researchers. Domains covered range from intelligence to personality, interests, and motivation – and from basic research on brain functions to real-world implications in the workplace and beyond.
Phillip L. Ackerman, Professor of Psychology, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA.

There is much in this handbook that does not simply summarise present knowledge but foreshadows the future state of differential psychology. Of use to the beginning student as well as the seasoned psychologist, any serious psychology library should possess this handbook.
Philip J. Corr, Professor of Psychology, University of East Anglia, UK

This impressive collection of antecedents, contemporary theory, and the latest empirical research does not shy away from controversial stances or highlighting consensual elements of the field, making this a must read for students, practitioners and researchers alike.  
Richard D. Roberts, Principal Research Scientist, Research and Development, Educational Testing Service, USA

With contributions from many leading researchers in differential psychology, The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Individual Differences provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of individual differences research. This book will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in the field.
Tony Vernon, Professor of Psychology, University of Western Ontario, USA

With thoughtful and well-written chapters – ranging from the genetics of individual differences, to the relation between intelligence and personality, to the traces that different individuals leave behind in their physical environments – this handbook manages to be both highly readable and thoroughly informative.
Colin G. DeYoung, Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Minnesota, USA
