While the text is presented in an appealing and eye-catching fashion, the general quality of the content lacks. Ideas are covered in a rather confusing and incomplete manner. While important concepts are not stressed, Santrock provides a plethora of insignificant detail from the beginning. What initially appeared to be a promising adolescent development text turned out to be largely disappointing.
