Every season holds the opportunity for new growth...Laura Berk, renowned professor and researcher in the field of human development, has revised this text with new pedagogy, a heightened emphasis on the interplay between biology and environment, and expanded coverage of biology, culture and social issues, while emphasizing the lifespan perspective of development. What readers are saying...Students would love this book-it's a joy to read! While Berk offers salient and up-to-date information rooted in a solid research base, she does not excessively weight discussion with jargon. Rather, she beautifully illustrates concepts through rich examples. -Edythe H. Schwartz, California State University-Sacramento Berk's coverage of topics in this chapter (17) is far superior to what appears in the leading social gerontology textbooks. The material is presented in a much clearer and interesting format by Berk. She has excellent writing skills and relates very well to students. -Dale A. Lund, San Diego State University There is a fluidity in the writing style that is superior to other textbooks I have examined. -Karl Hennig, St.;Francis Xavier University Extremely well-written with a good balance between being readable, accessible, and yet presenting the complexities of studying human behavior. -Laurie Gottlieb, McGill University ...the students like it and actually read it. They enjoy the vignettes, which encourage application to real life situations. -Nancy White, Youngstown State University ...an excellent survey of classic and contemporary work. It is very impressive in its comprehensiveness yet it also benefits from a fluidity of exposition that is remarkable. -Dana Plude, University of Maryland, College Park Berk's style of writing is very clear and easy to understand. My students have, semester after semester, expressed approval for Berk's clear writing style. Using real examples of children's behavior brings the material to life and my students appreciate it. -Deborah M. Chargois, Jacksonville State University

Rather, she beautifully illustrates concepts through rich examples." - Edythe H. Schwartz, California State University, Sacramento"I adopt this book for my Human Development course because it presents a comprehensive and even-handed survey of the theoretical and empirical issues that are central to the study of human development in a way that is accessible and interesting to my students." - Caty von Karolyi, University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire"There is a fluidity in the writing style that is superior to other textbooks I have examined." - Karl Hennig, St. Francis Xavier University"Berk's coverage of topics in this chapter (17) is far superior to what appears in the leading social gerontology textbooks.
