If you are taking a child development class this is the book you should use. The only down side was someone in the class had the 8th edition and the wording between both books was almost word for word. So unless you get a class that uses the 10th edition just save the money and buy the 8th edition. For the most part the book was great and really put everything out there, I just couldn’t get past how much it was a copy of edition 8.
Textbooks can be boring, overwhelming, insulting, underwhelming… This text is well written, well organized and interesting enough to hold your attention. I have enjoyed reading it and like Kathleen Stassen Berger’s writing style. This is one of the better Psychology books I’ve had.
I got this book suspecting it would be marked and worn. To my surprise it was not. No highlighted marks or tears.
The content is precise, the pictures are very helpful to understand the concepts. Lots of examples. I enjoy reading it. Great book!
