Editorial Reviews

Review

 

“There is a lot of information that gives breadth and depth to the content. In addition, the focus on cultural diversity far exceeds any other text on adolescent development.”

        - Rob Weisskirch, California State University- Monterey Bay

 

“The greatest strength of this text is the focus on varying cultural lenses and the use of updated research studies and frameworks to help guide students in understanding multiple perspectives of adolescent development.”

        - William Jared DuPree, University of Houston Clear Lake

 

“The cross-cultural emphasis is essential! It's the reason I chose the book over others at first. Emerging adulthood is really essential.”

        - Mary Vandendorpe, Lewis University

 

“The way that the material is presented really resonates with the students and they really review it well at the end of the semester. This is a wonderful text for college students”

        - Paige Curran, Emmanuel College

 

It is the best book out there for cultural issues. It is engaging, well-written and my students like it.”

        - Janet Gebelt, Westfield State University

I recently bought this book for a class online. Comparing this book from the other two psychology books I have to read, this is by FAR the most interesting one. I love Jeffrey Arnett's point of view and research on adolescence. It always finish reading the chapters on time because it's not boring! It's a fun learning experience! I definitely recommend this book if you are taking a adolescent psychology course, and if the teacher demands for this book - you'll absolutely love it!

I really enjoyed reading this book for my adolescent psychology class. It was both informative and educational; the author adds some of her personal stories with her children. Lots of statistics and comparisons between adolescent development in the United States and other countries. Some statistics are quite shocking and will make you more aware of where we stand as a society.

Great book! Really overlaps with many psychology classes. The first chapters are nearly the same as my freshman psychology course. After that it is really more focused on adolescent health and psychology. Long chapters, but it has lots of diagrams and real world examples.

This textbook is very interesting. I always look forward to reading this book. This kind of information I have very interested in and it's easy to related too. I like to know how cultures perceive this age development. This has a lot of good information in it.

I recommend people consider buying different versions of this textbook because it often ends up cheaper. Mine was made for a binder and I liked it. The ebook version is even cheaper.

Pristine shape, got everything I needed.

Very well written textbook. The chapters are a bit long winded but the author adds little jokes through out that catch you off guard and make you smile. It it not a hard read and makes the topic interesting.
