Summary "Studying Lives Through Time" presents a state-of-the-art survey of longitudinal research that documents the coherence (rather than consistency) of personality across the life course. It also demonstrates the processes by which personality can change for the better. /// In addition, "Studying Lives Through Time" examines the methodological promises and pitfalls of longitudinal research.
