From reviews of Motivation in Education: "I find it essential that students have access to such strong representations of the basic theories and work in the field of motivation...This book goes a long way toward reinforcing the voices of experts who make data-driven decisions about how to foster motivation...There are no available books [on motivation] as excellently crafted as this one." -Theresa A. Thorkildsen, University of Illinois at Chicago "This book is certainly the most comprehensive treatment of motivation. There are several others I have perused but they often take a certain approach to motivation whereas this book covers ALL approaches. The authors present a very complete and unbiased treatment of the literature." -Daniel H. Robinson, University of Texas
