Review
"[This book] gives a comprehensive, scholarly view of the complexities of motivation and self-regulated learning. The contributors to the book are nationally known researchers. The book provides a solid, well-researched foundation upon which the practitioner can create an environment or a curriculum that supports self-regulated learning and enhances student motivation."—Nancy Collins, The Journal of Higher Education July/August 2009, 80:4
