What readers are saying. . .

“Students would love this book-it's a joy to read! While Berk offers salient and up-to-date information rooted in a solid research base, she does not excessively weight discussion with jargon. Rather, she beautifully illustrates concepts through rich examples.” -Edythe H. Schwartz, California State University-Sacramento

“Berk's coverage of topics in this chapter (17) is far superior to what appears in the leading social gerontology textbooks. The material is presented in a much clearer and interesting format by Berk. She has excellent writing skills and relates very well to students.” -Dale A. Lund, San Diego State University

“There is a fluidity in the writing style that is superior to other textbooks I have examined.” -Karl Hennig, St. Francis Xavier University

“Extremely well-written with a good balance between being readable, accessible, and yet presenting the complexities of studying human behavior.” -Laurie Gottlieb, McGill University

“. . . the students like it and actually read it. They enjoy the vignettes, which encourage application to real life situations.” -Nancy White, Youngstown State University

“. . . an excellent survey of classic and contemporary work. It is very impressive in its comprehensiveness yet it also benefits from a fluidity of exposition that is remarkable.” -Dana Plude, University of Maryland, College Park

“Berk's style of writing is very clear and easy to understand. My students have, semester after semester, expressed approval for Berk's clear writing style. Using real examples of children's behavior brings the material to life and my students appreciate it.” -Deborah M. Chargois, Jacksonville State University
