I find this text to be a great resource for teachers. The text offers several developmental theories as applied to learners. The text also offers real life examples to study. You need a passcode (password) to be able to view the on-line videos. If one does not come with the text, a passcode can be purchased on-line from the mfg.(just under $30 and instant access) Also in the text are some great resources for material. More emphasis is placed on elementary and adolescence, with good reason since that is when most developmental stages occur. However, those areas help with understanding the secondary level of education. The text strictly looks at individual development and leaves out any influences due to group dynamics.

This book was the required text for a class I was taking in grad school and it was seriously the most interesting book I've ever read. I can honestly say I read every page. If this is an assigned book for your class be thankful because I think this is as good as it gets in terms of textbooks. Also since it wasn't a hardback it was easy to throw in my gym bag and take to the beach.

When I am done with it I plan on making paper airplanes, setting them on fire and throwing them out my 35th floor apartment building all the while screaming on the way down "WE'RE HIT, WE ARE GOING DOOOOWWWWWWWM!!!!!"

Oh yeah, it works fine for a book

The product was bought for graduate class. I could have saved my money by dusting off a copy of my undergrad textbook. That is not the fault of the publisher, that is the fault of the college!!!
I would recommend the book for college bound students.

This book is an excellent overview for someone new to psychology. The summation of theorists is wonderful.

My book was delivered really fast but there is considerable water damage and missing pages. The seller included some study guides they had written themselves which was nice though. But still, when I order a book in "good" condition I don't expect water damage and missing pages that I have to read for class. If I had ordered this book for pleasure reading I would be severely disappointed.

The book was required for a class and I found that it was not only useful in the class but was applicable in my own classroom.
