Being a senior psychology student, this book was mostly review for me but I needed it for my Developmental Psychology Class. It covers the development of a human physically, emotionally, and psychologically from zygote to death. The price was great, I got it for $28.00 used but you will be missing out on the virtual child program that is included in the new, unused text. I didn't need this program for my class but it would've been an interesting and engaging supplement. Some aspects that are unique to this text are the explanations of how each developmental stage affects an individual physically, psychologically, and emotionally. Overall a good buy.

Book was bought for a course in college. Honestly never read it as the instructor and class was easy to follow without this book. If your instructor provides good lecture notes you can skip this entirely and still get an A.

The book arrived promptly, it is in OK CONDITION. The reason I say OK is because I also purchased another book the same day and the other book is in GREAT condition. This book 'Understanding Human Development' has some highlighting and minor markings. The highlighting is not a whole lot and it's mainly at the beginning of the book, it doesn't bother me too much but I don't sell my books back because I like to do a lot of writing and highlighting meaning that the less of this there is the more of MY own notes and highlighting there will be at the end of the semester, I would give it 3 stars if it was not for the fact that I saved like $40 compared to buying it used at local bookstore.

IT'S OK AND NOT BAD ENOUGH TO RETURN-- OVERALL: SATISFIED

The book is in excellent condition and I have no complain about this book ; nevertheless, my school changed book to third edition after I purchased second edition just to make me mad. Thank you for your sympathy.
