Critic Reviews

"Offering the most comprehensive coverage imaginable, this handbook continues to occupy a unique position in the emotion field. Experts will find it invaluable for keeping current, and novices will find it an appealing and accessible introduction." (Susan T. Fiske, PhD, Eugene Higgins professor of psychology and professor of public affairs, Princeton University)

“The fourth edition of Handbook of Emotions once again assembles a brilliant set of chapters from the world’s foremost experts on every aspect of emotion. It is easy to see why this accessible and authoritative compendium has become, and still remains, the bible of the field. An essential resource for researchers and students alike.” (Daniel Gilbert, PhD, Edgar Pierce professor of psychology, Harvard University) 

"[An] excellent (and nearly exhaustive) reference...for emotion scholars in the social sciences and humanities.” (Evolutionary Studies in Imaginative Culture, published on: 2019-04-24)

Swashbuckler Pirate Lisa

I am taking a break from this book to say it appears for your peers, right?
Promise to finish soon, I must thank Lisa for her book on Emotions in 2017. Truly pulling my civilian science of Emotions current.

I was shocked to see it was 5 years old!! I have been at 2021 books, oldest. Your book hit me as so flowing and eye opening on emotion as thought itself. I was prepared well with Dan Siegel's newest Developing Mind, Hidden Spring, where Mark Solms fearlessly defines Consciousness as 'That which helps us do better " I was expecting follow up from you. That I could read so much and not hear of your ideas....

Emotions by Mlodnow ?? followed your ideas to a T, but lightly.

I see many high quality books with this science on Spontaneous human activity. All new LANGUAGE GAME, M. Christianson is same science spontaneous human activity !! Easterly, James Scott in Two Cheers for Anarchy & Think like a state, it is the stuff of new science for more humans like me.

Really informative but terrible narrator

it's really important to read this book because it has a lot information in it but the narrator sounds like a text to speech program I would highly recommend you buy this book on amazon or prepared to listen to 50 hours of sand paper in your ears
