3.0 out of 5 stars Child Psychology
This is an excellent book in the American style with very good layout and illustrations and it is easily read but is expensive for a paperback. My main reservation about this book is that there seems to be an underlying bias towards the feminist-type view of child development which the reader needs to be aware of. Dr. Bill Cochrane

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 17 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Child Development (Paperback)
Fantastic book. Accessible reading, includes 100's of great study examples which are not only interesting reading, but great for bolstering papers/exams grades and for further reading. Great coverage of research methods appropriate for study of child development and introduction on the history/emergence of child development as a discipline. I highly recommend this book to anyone studying child development for the first time. Ideal for undergraduate study upwards. Certainly this book will prove useful as a reference for advanced study - this book is a keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for psychology undergraduate, 6 April 2010
This review is from: Child Development (Paperback)
Really helpful book. Am in year 2 of psychology BSc and this book compliments the course well- makes things clear and easy to follow. Only thing is there isnt much about transitive inference which is a concept I didnt understand so had to look at other sources.
