Reviews

“The bibliography represents a massive effort to pull together diverse sources and fields of exploration into an integrated whole. The bibliography offers cross referencing by 28 subject headings, title, author and journal. It examines behaviors that directly influence the effectiveness of not only entrepreneurs, but also, goal achievement by diverse populations including women, children, minorities, athletes, etc. It focuses primarily on the literature over the last 20 years, distilled from a broad range of publications – citations from academic, trade, and practitioner books/journals.” – Dorothy E. Brawley

“The current work represents a real bibliographic tour-de-force in its efforts to bring together in a single document the current literature that speaks to these issues. Clinicians and researchers in a wide array of endeavors, such as in treatment, Industrial/Organizational, or academic context should find this work of use and value.” – Ralph L. Piedmont
