Overall the book was okay. It was not the most engaging read and some chapters dragged. The book unfortunately presented a handful of the material in a way that was far too dull for my taste. There were some better chapters/sections, and a few interesting points, but a majority of it glazed over information learned in previous courses (such as an intro to Psychology course) and made it feel repetitive for learning.

I did like the presentation of the material inside the books, so it was at least

Throughout the book, the author inserts data that dampens the outlook of aging. I think a fresh prespective would be to include how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, not just statistics on death, obesity, etc. Why not teach readers about nutrition and exercise, dealing with evitable stress (loss, change, aging, health concerns, etc.), etc.? It doesn't have to read like a self-help book, but let's balance the negative aspects with some positive ones.

I have decided I officially hate psychology! First of all, the book has so many typos and errors I had a hard time not looking for more as I was reading. Second, it was so boring I had a hard time staying awake. I wonder why people would spend their entire lives trying to figure out if a baby can distinguish between an airplane and a bird. Who cares? I certainly don't.

I think the only thing I didn't like about the book is the fact that I had to get the brand new version for my human development class and it cost $120 for a paperback.

The book has a lot of interesting information and I really like how the chapters are split up.

Not the first time I've taken a final exam. First time I've taken a final exam in the middle of the night while simultaneously battling mosquitoes....

Great resource for any people working with early adults all the way up to late adulthood. Perfect for people in the field of childcare - but check out the newer edition
Took 2 months but I finally finished

Engaging enough, though I hope to never encounter the adjective, "pubertal," again. Goodbye, PSY 311.
