For whatever reason, my campus bookstore does not sell the paperback version of this book. Even renting it from my bookstore was more expensive than just buying this book from this seller. I had another student ask where I got it. There is NOTHING different between this book and the hardback version the other students have in my class. Page numbers are the same, word-for-word everything is the same. The seller even rushed the shipping at no additional cost to me when I wrote to them that I needed it for a class. All in all, a happy purchase.
The content and quality/condition of the book are great! The authors made several grammatical errors. Some of these were very overt.
Overall, the content of the book is good, and sometimes I think personal projections/agendas are inadvertently expressed. Still, it was worth the purchase.
I got this book for a class I was taking. I really didn’t believe that I would have a need for this book after the class, but the information is fascinating! I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in learning about the human lifespan and the stages that we go through from birth all the way to death.
