How would i go about citing and referencing in the reference list if the author of the book is talking about a theory from someone else.

In the book Rollinson is talking about Tuckmans theory on group formation, I don't want to quote anything from what is being said, But I want to say something like... Tuckman suggests this model for group formation, blah blah blah

But I've got the information from the book by Rollinson who talks about Tuckmans theory

So im a bit stuck, any help?

If it's directly talking about Tuckman's theory, I think you put Tuckman(year) cited in Rollinson(year).
There's a website which you might find helpful. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/664/01/
