A Multiple Self Theory of Personality $98.00
Authors: David Lester (The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, Pomona, NJ) 
Book Description:
This book presents a new theory of personality. The use of the term “personality” by psychologists is odd since it does not coincide with the dictionary definition of personality. “The state or quality of being a person”.
