"The conceptual angle of the book is compelling, and based on a measured, broad and informed view of the literature. The authors show a familiarity and knowledge of this wide domain of expertise which they convey with clarity and in an accessible style." - Warren Mansell, School of Psychological Sciences, University of Manchester

"This book is a unique contribution to modern emotion research. There is no other text that manages to weave strands of historical and contemporary approaches to emotion science from philosophical, psychological, and clinical perspectives into a rich tapestry as Power and Dalgleish achieve with the presentation of their SPAARS model. This is a field in motion and the authors capture a moment in time and foster further integrative research by jumping effortlessly across the boundaries of different disciplines." - Arvid Kappas, Professor of Psychology, Jacobs University Bremen

"Once again, with their unique style, Power and Dalgleish have produced a most readable, comprehensive, and scholarly book on Cognition and Emotion. The integration of theory and evidence is done extremely well, and enhanced with reference to the authors' own integrative model of emotion (SPAARS). The authors' refreshing approach to the understanding of emotions puts this book in the top league of current competitors." - Nazanin Derakhshan, School of Psychology, Birkbeck University of London

"[ ] For any aspiring or even established researcher of emotion who wishes to maintain an open-minded view, what is presented here is an enjoyable, illuminating and persuasive read." Frances A. Maratos, Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2009

"[...]The authors should be commended for undertaking this very important and ambitious endeavour. What sets this text apart from other books on cognition and emotion is its attempt to describe the philosophical and historical underpinnings of work on emotion." - Canadian Psychology/Psychologie Canadienne, Naomi Koerner"
