This book makes the potentially overwhelming domain of social cognition interesting, accessible and meaningful. Rather than desperately cramming in ideas, like socks into an overpacked suitcase – Hamilton and Stroessner give space to think through with the reader the empirical findings, the ideas, debates and crucially, the relevance of the work covered.
I read this new textbook on Social Cognition because of my long-standing interest in the social cognition literature in social psychology. I was not disappointed. The book is not only an excellent text but a scholarly achievement in its own right.
