Why do people do what they do?
Why do people feel what they feel?
How can one person help motivate another?
Addressing these key questions and more, Johnmarshall Reeve’s Understanding Motivation and Emotion, Fourth Edition helps readers understand motivation, where it comes from, how and why it changes over time, and how motivation can be increased and its quality enhanced. The book also shows how to apply the principles of motivation in such settings as schools, the workplace, the athletic field, counseling, and one’s own personal strivings.
Now revised and updated to reflect the exciting recent advances in the field, this Fourth Edition features a new chapter on The Motivated and Emotional Brain (Chapter 3), new coverage of positive psychology, new Putting It All Together sections at the end of each chapter, and twice as many examples and illustrations as the prior edition.
