Although it's about average in terms of your typical boring textbook, what my biggest gripe with it are the Chapter tests at the end of each chapter; many of the test questions are wrong.
For an easy example pg. 319 Question # 12 asks, " Which of the following terms wold be applied to someone who is high in both masculinity and femininity?" the answer at the back of the book, "animistic". Not only is it not even mentioned in this chapter, it is wrong; animistic is the belief that non-humans, such as animals, have a spirit. This is not the only mistake, I've found several in each Chapter test and I'm surprised that after 6 editions, mistakes are still there. Same questions are in the 7th edition.
This may be no big deal if Chapter tests are something that you usually skip, but as a student, I wonder if it's the same people responsible for writing my college exams???

For the price, I think that this textbook lacked a lot of depth. It only hardly touches upon the main aspects of different theories regarding lifespan development. It will lay out the basics of the theories, but will not provide any in depth analyses of them. Also, if you are taking a class that requires you to know the basics of developmental theory like mine did, you would probably be better off just using google to find the theories you are looking for. All of this information is easily accessible online and this text does not offer anything special. It does not assist you in your learning, it only states what you should know. I ended up selling mine during the middle of my lifespan development course because my professor's notes were enough to guide me through the class with a little bit of help from the internet to assist my learning.

This textbook has tons of good information in it and does not seem to be biased. It has a few gaps, but it is an introductory textbook, so that is not a problem. I rented this for my Human Growth and Development class and I kind of wish I had actually purchased this one! We use the book every single week and it is a valuable resource. It is also very pleasant to read and flows nicely - that's very important to me when it comes to textbooks. I have learned a lot from it already and I was already fairly familiar with the subject! Highly recommend!

This book was helpful for my class on human development. It was an interesting read, and taught me a lot. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star review is because I have a special interest in geriatrics, and found some of the information in this book about the geriatric population to be inaccurate. I see there is now a newer edition, so I hope everything in the newer version is now up-to-date.

Decent, but older edition--as expected. Some data is very different from the newer editions, and the page numbers very different. If you need the newest edition for class, have time to compare and need to save $150--then buy this one. If you don't, get the the new one.

I love this book but i just wanted to note it already had some writing and highlighting in it before i rented it, which isn’t an issue for me but I wanted it to be known that I didn’t make any marks in the book so that I won’t be charged for it on my return date. But this book is perfect and I’m very happy with it!

Very good book. Explanations for developmental psychology terms very expansive. I would recommend to any teacher or student.

I’ve rented several items from Amazon, this is the first I’ve been disappointed in. There are highlights all throughout the text, and the spine of the book has a cut. It’s usable, but definitely poor quality.
