Good lifespan development textbook. The book comes from a humanistic perspective and I found several places where i disagreed with the bias, being a conservative Christian. Nevertheless, Berk does a good job at surveying the current literature in biology, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and education, and pulling it together into a fairly readable study on the experience of being human. Admirable work.

Recommends it for: students or anyone interested in understanding human development
This was required for a graduate class in Human Experience. Well written and actually held my interest with stories that illustrate the theories it talks about. Terrible index though.
