Format: Paperback
John Santrock's Adolescence provides readers with an easy-to-read, up-to-date textbook that adequately covers adolescent development within schools and at home. Current research and recent statistics accompany the subjects at hand, and fully encompass the physical, psychological, and socioemotional developments of students. Chapters include: Careers in Adolescent Development; Puberty, Health, and Biological Foundations; The Brain and Cognitive Development; The Self, Identity, Emotions, and Personality; Gender; Sexuality; Moral Development, Values, and Religion; Families; Peer and Romantic Relationships; Schools; Achievement, Work, and Careers; Culture; Problems in Adolescent and Emerging Adulthood. Certain sections have been expanded upon for the twelfth edition. The various subjects are not, of course, covered in depth, as this is meant to be a sweeping introduction to the field of adolescent psychology. However, it will arm readers with a better understanding and proper direction for further, more critical research.

Format: Paperback
This book covers a lot of information (although it often just skims over info and makes some very obvious, non-thorough analytical points)...but yeah there are many places where the reader is thrown off by awkwardly-worded sentences, and there are also a few typos. Being a college student, I've puchased tons of textbooks in the past two years, and I have found that books written by just one person tend to be the most sloppy all around- perhaps because when you are the sole individual working on a project (be it a book or anything else), you kind of have tunnel vision and are less open to criticism.

This was a mandatory text for an Adolescent Psychology class. Overall, the book is well-written and organized well.

Like: Detailed with very recent research.
Dislikes: There is a lot of emphasis on individual studies. The reader is left to figure out the big takeaways in psychology.

I would still recommend this book, however, depending on the level of study (high school, undergraduate, graduate), it may not fit every learners' needs.

I bought this book for a course I was taking in adolescent psychology. The book is well organized, and I enjoyed using it in the course. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was that there were a few topics common to adolescents that I wanted more information on, and they were not included in the text. Otherwise, this is a fine book.

Easy to understand knowledgable textbook with a balance of classic and recent research and theories. Was a pleasure to learn the material directly from Professor Santrock at UTD.

School textbook, exactly what I needed. The 13th edition of this book is nearly the same as the 14th edition, but much cheaper.

I had to buy this textbook for Adolescent Psychology, and the most that could be said for it was that we didn't have to read the entire book. While it did offer some interesting insights into adolescent demographics and statistics, overall the book was just a long-winded review of General Psychology. For a more insightful look into the lives and actual psychology of adolescents, I recomend Hurt by Chap Clark.
