Reviews

`An intriguing book...valuable to both social and clinical psychologists....The volume is a rich resource for current findings on self-esteem....the intellectual level is high. The chapters are clearly reseasoned and well written...this is really a thought-provoking book....The book raises significant questions about what self-esteem is and how it is formed, and it should do much to stimulate further innovative work in this area.'
