Reviews:

‘In this lucidly written book Paul Harris changes how we think about children and emotion. No one who looks with or studies either should miss this book.’ – Paul Ekman, University of California, San Francisco
‘This is a superb book on all counts. First, it is exceptionally lucid and easy to read. Second, it is serious, responsible, and thought-provoking in its presentation of the material. Finally, Harris offers the scientist in this area a number of important creative insights about how development might proceed. In sum, this is a truly outstanding volume, one that combines lucidly with real depth and substance to an unusual degree.’ – John H. Flavell, Stanford University

‘I know of no other book in which theory and evidence on emotions and their relation to children’s social understanding is presented as well as in this book by Paul Harris.’ – Keith Oatley, The Psychologist

‘Harris’ book should be the first point of reference for any student of the development of emotional understanding.’ – Simon Baron-Cohen, British Journal of Developmental Psychology
