Quotes and reviews

"We do emphatically recommend this volume for those in the fields of cognitive, experimental, and educational psychology. Without exception, the authors present their arguments, theories, and data in a clear and readable fashion. We would also recommend the volume for those teaching courses in cognitive psychology. The volume contains well-structured reviews of current research and theory, as well as proposing future research agendas to answer important questions."--PsycCRITIQUES
