In this revised edition, David Shaffer succeeds like never before at presenting the facts, theories, and processes of developmental psychology in a clear, easy-to-read style. Long known for the way he conveys his love of the discipline, Shaffer shows his readers how the theory and research he presents can be applied to a number of real-life settings. Like no other book in the field, this one pulls together all the relevant facts and ideas to ensure interest and understanding. Students learn new topics as these topics are introduced, and then they are shown how everything theyve learned fits together into a coherent storyline of developmental psychology.

Review:

"I already use Shaffer's text, and plan to continue. I often have students tell me that they plan to keep the book as a reference for when they have children!"

"I have use Shaffer's text in my courses in developmental psychology for eight years . . . the new edition builds on the earlier ones, maintaining the high level of writing and the extensive reliance on research that are continuing strengths of Shaffer's text. New material has been incorporated effectively . . ."
