The chapters that follow offer fi rst-person accounts of the career journeys of
13 distinguished social psychologists. The authors describe their personal
career journeys, the signifi cant people and events that infl uenced their
paths, the major turning points, the main decisions, the challenges, the opportunities
and setbacks they experienced, and how the lessons they learned along the way
