This book offers a solid introduction to the principles of behavior using a clear, interesting, entertaining style with many case studies, and everyday examples. It maintains a high level of intellectual rigor, addressing fundamental concepts at the beginning of each chapter with more advanced topics left for one of the two enrichment sections within each chapter. Chapter topics cover the reinforcer, reinforcement, escape, punishment, penalty, extinction and recovery, differential reinforcement and punishment, shaping, unlearned reinforcers and aversive conditions, special establishing operations, learned reinforcers and aversive conditions, discrimination, imitation, avoidance, punishment by prevention, ratio schedules, time-dependent schedules, concurrent contingencies, stimulus-response chains and rate contingencies, respondent conditioning, analogs to reinforcement, a theory of rule-governed behavior, pay for performance, moral and legal control, maintenance, transfer, and research methods. For psychologists, clinical psychologists, and social workers who do not specialize in behavioral analysis; as well as for supervisors and managers.
  • The content is extremely entertaining and easy to read, which is almost unheard-of in such an informative, insightful, and educational textbook. I think that it is a wonderful introduction to Applied Behavior Analysis. The content is radically behaviorist, which Dr. Malott discloses, but that makes sense since it's a behavior analysis book!

    Besides the occassional (very minor) grammatical errors/inconsistencies (i.e. vocabulary in book not matching that in glossary, infrequent spelling errors that still should have been caught by the editors, etc.), my only issue is that some of the real-life examples seem a bit exaggerated. He has the real research and cites it, but I feel that it is presented in a way that makes the whole process seem easier than it is. However, he and his assistants are the experts - not me - so I could be wrong from my limited experience thus far.

    I'd love to see this as an e-book since it's black/white. I would literally buy a Kindle just for this textbook (hint, hint).

  • Hands Down the best, most eye-opening book I have ever read. Malott cuts all psychological theories down to the basics - and we are presented with his truly scientific version of radical behaviorism. It all makes perfect, basically undebatable, sense; as the reader learns one principle of organsims' behavior after another, with real research (and shockingly effective results) combined with easy to read stories helping to understand newly presented information. Doctor Malott wants to "save the world with behavior analysis," and if this book shows any sign of the field's potential, I think he (we) certainly will.

  • I have heard about the book for several years, but as a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst, I feel like I've read every introductory behaviour analysis book going, and, after a while, they pretty much all say the same thing, and pretty much all have the same limitations. Perhaps a big difference with Dr. Mallot's book is that it has basic as well as advanced or enriched reading sections. These sections take the reader to areas of common behaviour analytic topics that are rarely discussed in even more advanced texts (or if they are discussed, they are not highlighted as being distinctly 'advanced' topics). One of the best examples in the book is Dr. Mallot's inclusion of discussion about the role of punishment in discrimination training. As he points out, discrimination training is always said to have two components: extinction and reinforcement. But what about the role of punishment? He discusses it, and rightly points out that no other text does. This is just one example of the importance of the book and one of the aspects that makes it invaluable to both the neophyte and the experienced analyst, especially those of us who have never conducted basic experimental research. It is also amusing at every turn. bh

  • The content was good, however there were some part of the book I disliked the writing style. Sometimes the author made you feel like a child while reading this book. That being said, in general, the book was easy to understand and comprehend in a subject matter that can get murky at times.

  • It's a really interesting book and it is for class. I can't put it down once I start my assigned reading and I really feel that even people who don't like psychology would like this textbook. Not to mention how it's written has got me pulled in since it sounds as if it is actually talking to you like a person and not using words way above your own head.

  • Great text! Helped me study for my boards!

  • This was very easy and fun to read- I read most of the sections before they were even assigned. Helpful and down to earth, and very easy to read unlike most textbooks.

  • Delivered as promised and good condition.
