Discovering the Lifespan provides a broad overview of the field of human development and features a strong balance of research and application. In a unique departure from traditional lifespan development texts, each chapter is divided into three modules, and in turn, each module is divided into several smaller sections. Consequently, students encounter material in smaller, more manageable chunks that optimize learning.
Discovering the Lifespan also provides students with an engaging, meaningful experience that is rich in examples and illustrates current applications derived from the research and theory of lifespan developmentalists.

“It offers a concise, yet seamless merge of the physical and cognitive perspectives on development with the social and personality dimensions. A truly enjoyable read!”

--Ravi Ramkissoonsingh, Niagara College
“Informative, readable, use of good examples. Student tailored.”
--Alwin Spence, John Abbott College
“Chapter prologues and end-summaries effectively illustrate the central themes of the chapter in a concrete way....In text self-test and review boxes help students challenge their understanding of the material before moving on....Excellent depth and accuracy. There is certainly a great deal of information available to the engaged and motivated student.”
“This text is a clearly written, user friendly text that helps students connect the dots between developmental knowledge/theory and the human and personal experience of development.”
