Review:

"This volume provides a collection of historical and up-to-date literature reviews on issues central to thinking and problem solving... the most impressive chapters, which set this book apart from typical undergraduate cognitive psychology books, reconsider the relationship of language and thought in the context of the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis; offer a comprehensive review of definitions, models, and techniques of measuring creativity; describe the development of problem solving in infancy and childhood; call for an inclusion of cultural and cross-cultural considerations of cognition; and discuss the rationale and methods of formally teaching thinking and problem solving...As a source of current and extensively referenced in-depth essays, this is a valuable resource for upper-division undergraduates, graduates, and faculty working in cognitive and educational psychology." --CHOICE "Almost all of the chapters are accessible and intelligible to educated readers whether they are psychologists or not. This is an unexpected and impressive accomplishment for a handbook... Almost every chapter gives a balanced description of the major perspectives or theoretical viewpoints that allow the reader to see the structure of the major approaches to each topic... The work admirably fulfills the stated purpose of both the volume and the series." --James J. Jenkins, University of South Florida, Tampa, in CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
