This book I highly recommend to those who would like to become teachers and professors. The analisys represented in this book and all the theories can guide you to learn many things about children and all. Just make sure if your a college student to actually read it. My favorite chapter is Chapter # 4 where you learn about how to avoid (or maybe try atleast) the worst case for infants which is SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Also this book teaches you how parents can be either a positive/negative influence on you and what they can do to change. Highly reccomended book. And relatively fast to learn.

The book had a little more highlighting than I would have liked, but it's in overall good condition. I am pleased with the purchase considering the money I saved buying it used....
