Abstract: It is perhaps too common and conventional to praise a monograph as an invaluable contribution to a particular research area, but Work, Family, and Personality is indeed worthy of such praise. This book presents a unique study of the two most important socialization contexts for adults - work and family - and specifies their intricate linkages. It is important reading for scholars interested in work and family, those concerned with stability and change in personality through the life course, and those studying the interplay of social structure and personality.
