About the Author

Barbara M. Newman (Ph.D., University of Michigan) is a professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Rhode Island. She has also been on the faculty at Russell Sage College and The Ohio State University, where she served as department chair in Human Development and Family Science and as associate provost for Faculty Recruitment and Development. She teaches courses in life-span development, adolescence, family theories, and the research process. Also an active researcher, Dr. Newman's interests focus on parent-child relationships in early adolescence, factors that promote success in the transition to high school, and the use of the cohort sequential design as an approach to the study of development. Her research includes an analysis of the role of family, peer, and school support in the transition to high school (funded by the University of Rhode Island's Research Foundation). For fun, Newman enjoys reading, making up projects with her grandchildren, taking walks along Narragansett Bay and Block Island Sound, and spending time with her family.

Philip R. Newman (Ph.D., University of Michigan) is involved in research on the transition to high school as well as on group identity and alienation. His projects include an analysis of issues related to disrupted transitions in adolescence and early adulthood, and a book about how high schools can meet the psychosocial needs of adolescents. He has taught courses in introductory psychology, adolescence, social psychology, developmental psychology, counseling, and family, school, and community contexts for development. He served as the director for Research and Evaluation of the Young Scholars Program at The Ohio State University and as the director of the Human Behavior Curriculum Project for the American Psychological Association. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), and the American Orthopsychiatric Association. For fun, Newman enjoys photography, reading mysteries, attending concerts and Broadway plays, and watching baseball. He home schooled his three children through elementary and middle school. Together, the Newmans have worked on programs to bring low-income minority youths to college and to study the processes involved in their academic success. They are coauthors of 13 books, including a book on theories of human development, and numerous articles in the field of human development.

I wish I'd known this was a binder book instead of one with binding. I'm not too disappointed since this is the best price I've seen for this book, but now I need a binder to put it in.

I purchased the Kindle version since the price was more than half off the new hard copy price. The only downside I have found so far is that there are no page numbers available. Having no page numbers makes it more difficult to cite when writing papers. I have a Kindle Fire and do not know if it's the same for all kindle versions. This was the first textbook I have purchased for a Kindle and do not know if this is common or not.
In the description of the book, it states there are 621 pages. It doesn't explicitly state if the Kindle version comes with pages numbers.

This is a textbook for a Counseling Psychology class on Human Development. Like many textbooks, it's a bit wordy, they go over the same concept from many different angles, and of couse some case studies to illustrate the point. So IMHO it's a bit repetitious if you hang on every word. But having said that, overall it's well done, and thankfully well written (some psychologists are horrible writers!)

This is an informative book, yet the subject matter is a little dry. I think it is made as interesting as the topic allows. It is organized well and easy to move through the stages.

Newest and most updated version of this book. The book is well written and easy to understand. It is a great book weather you are just learning about Developmental Psych or have a good understanding of it already. I received it very fast. I recommend it. My school bookstore was out, so I ordered it here with only a couple days to get it. I had it within 2 days.

Text is very dry and kind of boring. A supplement to teacher's notes and lectures

It was in rougher shape than I thought, held together by a lot of colored duct tape. When It arrived, the binding was broken and pages had fallen out. I am guessing it was a causuality of shipping. All the pages are here so I spent some time using epoxy glue and cleaning supplies. It looks and performs ok now. Inside pages are terrific! I have found zero writting or highlighting.

The book arrived fine and is more than usable. I would call the book like new at all as it has ripped pages and the binding is separating from the book.
