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.
