"Very poor text book" according to Sean Davis. I'm in a MSW program and this text book was part of the reading material. For a text book, its poorly written. The book jumps from topic to topic and does not have a clear flow from one subject to anouther. Items are misplaced and the information is difficult to find. In my class of 25 student there was no one who was happy with this book.. Joshua Jenkins said nice book. This is a great book on humnan development. I have not finished it but so far for my class it is one of the best that I have seen and my undergraduate courses were in Human Development. I really like this book and the information in it.. "great bargain!" according to LaNell Simmonds. Purchased through Amazon because it was much cheaper then the campus bookstore. Needed this text book for my HBSE class. Very interesting and helpful book. Not at all dull like a lot of required text books are. Must buy for social work majors!
