Without being repetitive, the authors draw helpful connections between different parts of the book. The chapter structure makes the book easy to use as well as interesting for both students and teachers.

This revision of an already-outstanding textbook provides a comprehensive, current, and well-organized description of research on attitudes and persuasion.  It takes an international perspective and constitutes an excellent textbook for undergraduate or graduate courses on attitudes.

This excellent book presents contemporary developments in research and theory of the psychology of attitudes and persuasion. The editors, experts in the field, have done an amazing job organizing the content in a very comprehensive, accessible, and attractive way. For those interested in the processes behind changing minds, this book offers a great selection of current topics. The content is stimulating and up to date. This book is a “must” for students in psychology, communication, and marketing, and to any scholar interested in the science of psychological change.

A must-read for any aspiring attitudes expert. A great balance of classic foundational material and new developments. Maio, Haddock, and Verplanken have produced a valuable contribution to the vibrant literature on attitudes and persuasion. Reading this book will teach you the basics AND keep you on the cutting edge.

Professor of Psychology, Cardiff University

I have a number of interests within the study of attitudes, including the role of affective and cognitive processes in attitudes, the impact on mindfulness on attitudes and attitude change, how individual differences influence attitude processes, and how reading persuasive material in different media formats influences attitudes and attitude change.  Other research helps to understand how social values get translated into action.

Professor of Social Psychology at the University of Bath.

My research is in the broader domain of attitudes and attitude-behavior relations. I have a particular interst in habits (both behavioral and mental habits), values, the self, and self-regulation. I apply these interests in areas such as health, consumer and environmental behavior.
