5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book
This book is required reading for my current graduate class: Human Growth & Development. It is a great book that provides in-depth info about human development throughout the lifespan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dry
This is one of the most dry and boring textbooks I've had to read. The only textbook more boring than this one, that I can remember, was an anatomy book. I have a strong interest in psychology, so for me to find a psychology book to be boring, it must be pretty bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars I used this book for my Dev. Psych class, March 13, 2004
By A Customer
The chapters are long, about 40 pages each, but I found this book to be excellent for examining the development through the lifespan. If you could see my copy, it's underlined all over the place, there's some great material in this book. I am considering having children and will definately refer to this book if and when I do. It basically tells you how to NOT mess up your kids!

3.0 out of 5 stars I used this book in my Human Devel. class... its ok, November 1, 2000
I used this book in my Introduction to Human Development Course. The print is small and the chapters are very long (about 35 to 40 pages each). However, the information provided is interesting.
