About this item

What drives people toward their goals? Does motivation come from outside the individual or from within? This is a concise, engaging overview of leading theories and the wide body of research about this core concept in psychology. It draws from a broad spectrum of psychological models and disciplines, and is unique in its focus on how each theory of motivation—behavioral, neurobiological, attribution, and other models--views and defines various concepts within that theory. The book is also unique in its multidisciplinary focus, whereby research is drawn not only from different domains of psychology but also from such disciplines as education and business. Real life examples illuminate how various models explain behavior and connect the study of motivation to our daily lives.
