Format: Paperback
I actually have taken two courses with Dr. Weisfeld at Wayne State University. He loves relating all facets of psychology to evolutionary theory. His lectures and writing are very clear and coherent. I highly recommend this book for everyone who wants to know the origin of various behaviors. I hope he updates this book soon.

It is not easy to find a great book about adolescence and evolution! Glenn Weisfeld helped enormously to the understanding of this period of changes and the human development, specially for the human behavior evolution student.

This was a really great text. Not only does it introduce and detail the biological processes that make the changes of puberty occur, it also studies adolescence in traditional societies, modern societies, and current social problems in modern societies. The one thing I disagreed with the author on was his argument that puberty rites are universal. That's a tricky term to me, but well...I'll let you decide for yourself once you read it. It's definitely worth it! I have such greater insight now into adolescence as a life history stage.
