Covering biological, learned, and cognitive components of motivation, this introductory college text discusses advantages and drawbacks of each theory, allowing students to draw their own conclusions. Petri and Govern (both psychology, Towson U.) illustrate their topics with real-life examples such as sexual behavior, eating disorders, aggression, and obesity. The fifth edition offers new discussions of behavioral ecology, cognitive ethnology, evolutionary psychology, and coverage of current topics such as sleep and stress, health psychology, and sensory-specific satiety related to hunger.
