I really like this book. I'm having to read it for child growth and development and it's so easy to read. Most textbooks are boring and hard to understand but this has basic vocabulary for non psych majors. It also has lots of vignettes and it puts vocabulary definitions in the margins rather than looking in the back of the the book. Loving it
I work in a Psychology program at a University and this book looks like it was thrown together at the last minute. The materials aren't organized well, and the testing materials that come with the "bonus" materials have tons of typos and glitches. We no longer use this book in our Child Psychology class.
I loved this textbook. I also was extremely happy with the condition it arrived in as it was a rental for college. Thank you!
