Review:

Craig Outhouse - Western New England College The strength of the text is the integration of text, graphics, with current research. Additionally, the readibility makes the book accessible to a range of learners. Additionally, the use of hot topics (autism MMR vacine debate) makes the reader even more interested in the text. Feldman has an uncanny ability to make dry (but important) research fun to read. He is both an advocate for scholars and scholars in training. Rather than simply tell the reader what they should think, Feldman challenges them with higher order thinking questions that allow for a much stronger understanding and appreciation of the topics. Barb Ramos - Simpson College I believe this is a very strong text. I have used it repeatedly and it gets great reviews from my students. It is readable and interesting even for reluctant readers. It is visually pleasing. The content is clearly expressed and organized. This is the best text that I've used for this course. Jo Ann Armstrong - Patrick Henry Community College My students seem to read the material and to understand it and to be challenged to ask questions or comment on what they have read. Very thorough and yet does try to be as brief as possible on a wide variety of topics. Nice layout with wide margins and nice colored photographs. Sindy Armstrong - Ozarks Technical College It is easy for students to use which is something I am always looking for. Stephanie Babb - University of Houston-Downtown The greatest strengths are the well-written, comprehensible text, and also the colorful pictures. The chapters are also well-organized. Verneda Hamm Baugh- Kean University The greatest strengths are the writing style, actual layout of the book, and the broad discussion of racial/gender/cultural diversity incorporated in the book beyond the Developmental Diversity boxes. Cynthia Calhoun - Southwest Tennessee Community College I think that students can understand the material with the tables, definitions, and inserts such as "From Research to Practice" to support the narrative. Cara Cashon - University of Louisville Well-organized, yes. Yes, there are good examples. The figures included are very helpful. Donnell Griffin - Davidson County Community College The ongoing use of CURRENT research from HIGH QUALITY sources (and pointing out what those are) is VERY GOOD! It is comprehensive and balanced. It also teaches students how to critically assess the usefulness of quality research and information. Sandra Hellyer - Ball State University The chapters are clear, interesting, and well-organized. The greatest strengths of this text is Feldman's writing style. Donnell Griffin- Davidson County Community College Feldman provides a very balanced, data based presentation of Human Development. The material is high quality and covers the diversity of human experience well. Lisa Brown - Frederick Community College I love the layout and organization!!
