Thorough with lots of great bolded terms and definitions.
Organized and Informative

The rented kindle version was easily readable on my kindle fire and phone via kindle syncing app. Bold keywords, highlighting ability, sharing option to note keeper, and marking flashcards from text proved beneficial for later quick referencing.

“Birth order is a crucial factor. Whereas oldest children
tend to identify with their parents and authority and to sustain the status quo, younger
children tend to rebel (cf. Averett, Argys, & Rees, 2006). Moreover, the repercussions of
sibling rivalry extend beyond individual development to society as a whole”
