Not very well written. I've read textbooks with way more information, that also explain things better and with more detail. This was more like skimming the surface of all child-psych topics, yet not explaining anything.
Just changing the year of the book, I dont want it to count on my reading meter as I didnt read the whole book from cover to cover.
I am reading this for a class I'm taking. It is full of usefull information.
(I have actually read it before, but years ago)
I really liked this book and what it taught me. I enjoyed the class and remember it fondly.
For a school book, it was fun to read.
