Book Description

Check out a preview.

Edition after edition, Berger’s highly praised, bestselling text opens students’ eyes to the ways children grow—and the ways that growth is investigated and interpreted by developmentalists. Staying true to the hallmarks that have defined Berger’s vision from the outset, the Eighth Edition again redefines excellence in a child development textbook, combining thoughtful interpretations of the latest science with new skill-building pedagogy and media tools that can revolutionize classroom and study time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Duplicate Edition June 12, 2013
By Bren
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Text Book May 11, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

We have found that renting textbooks are the way to go. It has saved us a bundle of money and when we are done, we just send it back and then we look for other books for my daughters college classes.

I purchased this text book because it was required for my Child Dev class. I got a reasonable price through Amazon. It is a decent read--interesting, but not fascinating. Read more

What was expected.
Easy to follow and understand.

Also, the loose leaf books are always reasonably priced, which is why I prefer them.
