The book includes a diverse collection of source materials in personality psychology and provides support for students about how to read them.

In addition to source readings, the book includes (new) original content that provides support, context, and instruction to students about how to read in the field. The book's first chapter describes a rationale for reading in the discipline and discusses some of the major issues and challenges in doing so. Each subsequent chapter describes a different sort of reading (e.g., original research report, theoretical review, book review, etc.) and the special challenges involved in reading and studying them.
