Yes I did read this whole book, however it was for a class. I actually found myself enjoy reading this, but some of the chapters the information was repetitive. It's very insightful and gave new perspective on adolescents. First textbook I ever read completely. So I give it 5 stars for the fact that I was able to do that.
This was the textbook for my Adolescent Psych class. I don't remember it being particularly interesting, even for a textbook, but it wasn't the worst textbook I've read. It was weird for me to be reading this though considering I was barely out of adolescence at the time. I remember a lot of the course and thus this text seeming like common knowledge from living through adolescence.

It's a text book. It has a lot of stats. It has no application just facts. If you want to study about adolescence, pick it up. If you want to learn how to talk to adolescence, do not read a book.

Very well written text book! It was easy to read and informative! It's one that I will definitely be keeping for future reference.

Reading a sample. The $117.00 AMD price tag is scary. I'm glad I'm not buying books for college these days!
