Review of the hardback: 'In summary, this book is an excellent addition to the literature on social cognition - an ambitious attempt to draw together the multiple branches of empathy research seems to have been met with success.' Psychological Medicine Review of the hardback: 'The foreword is recommended first read to prevent losing one's way, as it serves as an excellent and quite thorough tour guide. ... As an uninitiated reader, this book has succeeded in evoking interest in this comprehensive area. But also for active researchers within this field, this edited book provides an overview and literature references to other current research approaches.' Journal of Psychosomatic Research
