My text for my Life-Span Developmental Psychology course, I found this book to be laid-out in a easy to follow manner. The break up of parts into sections and "Tying It All Together" Questions at the end of each section was extremely helpful. The references the author made to past chapters/topics also helped me think of what I read in later chapters as relevant/follow the thread of development better (and vice versa when she referred to something we would learn later in the book).
This was a book that I HAD to read for my lifespan developement pyschology class, but I must say out of all the other psychology books, this author did a wonderful job at explaining development. I enjoyed this book and will continue to use it throughout my life.
Read this for a class. Turns out I remember a ton of stuff that was in in it, so I guess it's pretty good.
