    I read this book immediately following Motivation to Learn: Integrating Theory and Practice as part of a project in a graduate-level education class. I think that Stipek's book was written to be used practically by teachers while I feel that this book is written with those in academia as its primary audience. I do not intend to say that one approach or book is better than the other, but that perspective may be helpful for those looking for book written from a certain standpoint.

I found this book to be thorough and all-encompassing. The authors begin with foundational work in psychology from the 19th century so that readers can have a better understanding of how more recent research fits into the field as well as how newer work is built on questions and insufficiencies of older work. Without picking winners and losers, the authors give background and applications for more recent research, particularly when research in the field has coalesced around the same central concepts. I thought that the authors summarized the (then) current state of the research extremely well and, as a result, I think this book is an excellent overview for future researchers. I think that it can also be useful for teachers and administrators that are looking for a deep dive into the factors that affect their everyday work.

    This is good introduction to motivation theory. Although it is framed around K-12 (and my interest is adults) I found it helpful and useful. The authors maintain a good structure and good organization of the material. They are careful in their use of terms, which in this field can at a times get crossed and confused into each other.

    This is a great introduction to the many constructs under the broad umbrella of motivation in educational settings. It is a text book for courses in educational psychology and higher education, but the overviews and sources that it provides would benefit not only those interested in research in these areas but teachers throughout P-16.
