I'm 90% this is the edition I've read. Back in 2007 I read a book on child development from Open University as preparatory work for a course I was going to take during the year (and didn't know my textbook for that yet as it was the summer). What can I say, I liked reading ahead :). This book helped me ease my anxieties about the subject matter and made future material for that course much easier to be aborbed. Got an easy A thanks partly to this book!
