Product Description

Product Description

In this tenth edition of Adolescence, Laurence Steinberg continues to utilize an effective combination of a friendly writing style, thorough research, and a contextual approach that emphasizes adolescence in contemporary society. The text's careful organization ensures maximum teaching flexibility that allows the chapters to work together to be covered in sequence or to stand alone. Ethnicity and minority issues are thoroughly discussed in a way that enables students to see how the adolescent experience is shaped by class and culture. The strong pedagogical framework helps students organize and integrate material. Thoroughly updated to reflect current findings in the field of adolescent development, Adolescence is based on solid research and theory, yet it has a distinctively "real world" feel that emphasizes the reality of being an adolescent in today's society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Adolescent Book 13 May 2014
By J. R. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I needed this book for my adolescent psychology course. It was very informative and a good value. As a new parent, I found great insight into child development and think any new parent may appreciate this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great material, but... 17 Feb 2014
By Counselor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I think this book does a wonderful job taking readers through biological, cognitive, and relationship changes during adolescence. I was really impressed by the inclusion of the latest research modifying Piaget's theories. I agree with other users saying this book was repetitive, but sometimes the repetition was the topic as viewed from different perspectives (ex: Baumrind's authoritative parenting and how it applies to education-teaching, education-administrative policies, education-poverty-stricken neighborhoods, education-self esteem issues, education-hormonal changes, etc.).

I would have given it four stars, except that the author tends to loose objectivity when discussing hot-button topics such as homosexuality, abortion, and contraception. Otherwise, a very enjoyable book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for classroom 28 Dec 2013
By Alexandra Wall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was required for a class I took this past semester. The book was okay for the material, but it was also repetitive and a little dull. The graphs and figures were most useful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring 3 May 2014
By Elle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had to get this book for a class i was taking. I was originally so excited to read it, but that quickly went away. Steinberg is so repetitive, you feel like you are reading the same paragraph throughout the entire chapter. Even my professor regretted using this book (this was her first time). I don't recommend this book!
