"Herrmann, Raybeck and Gruneberg hit the nail on the head: progress in the scientific profession is best achieved through a marriage of basic and applied research. One, without the other, is incomplete. Given their solid training, their track record in basic research and their strong commitment to the practical application of psychological principles, Hermann, Raybeck, and Gruneberg are well suited as matchmakers for the marriage. This book is an invitation to the wedding."
