'The book can serve as an excellent study guide for
students....equally useful for teachers and researchers in
psychology who work with SDT theory. It is very detailed and
complete from a didactical point of view. This is not a book that
can be read hastily; rather it must be studied. The methods
described here can be used in many other fields as well."
