This book is about a trait describing variations in the universal need for novel and intense stimulation and its expressions in various risky kinds of behaviour (including driving habits, health, gambling, financial risk, alcohol and drug use and abuse, sexual behaviour, and sports). Sensation seeking is also important in preferences for various vocations, media forms and content, food, humour and social attitudes. Compatibility in the trait influences premarital and marital relationship satisfaction. Its modes of assessment, behavioural expressions, and genetic and psychobiological bases are described by one of the leading researchers in this field. This book presents the only available study of this fascinating topic and it will be sure to interest researchers and their students active in personality research.

"Anyone curious about the utility of a unified field of psychology should read Zuckerman's stellar book on sensation seeking...I find it hard to imagine a psychologist who would not learn something of real value from this book." Contemporary Psychology "It is rare to see strong coverage of a topic that spans measurement, sensation, perception, motivation, cognition, learning, clinical and biological studies....Zuckerman makes a successful case for psychology. This work provides one-stop shopping for researchers and applied psychologists who need to catch up on the progress made since his previous book on sensation seeking....Behavioral Expressions and Biosocial Bases of Sensation Seeking is a highly successful unified psychology of an individual difference variable....I find it hard to imagine a psychologist who would not learn something of real value from this book." Allan R. Karkness, Contemporary Psychology
