About the Author:

Robert V. Kail is Distinguished Professor of Psychological Sciences at Purdue University. His undergraduate degree is from Ohio Wesleyan University, and his PhD is from the University of Michigan. His research focuses on cognitive development during childhood and adolescence. Kail is editor of Child Development Perspectives and editor emeritus of Psychological Science. He received the McCandless Young Scientist Award from the American Psychological Association, was named the Distinguished Sesquicentennial Alumnus in Psychology by Ohio Wesleyan University, and is a fellow of the Association for Psychological Science.

Review:

A truly striking aspect of this book is that it is so absorbing. Kail’s writing style draws the reader in and transforms a series of what are traditionally quite challenging tasks into activities which are brief, focused and easy to engage with. (Julie Taylor, University of Cumbria)
