From the Back Cover
This book provides a straightforward introduction to child development. It also covers the methods and problems of research into children, and the application of new findings in practical life. Thus it explores the ideas of such giants as Freud, Bowlby and Piaget, and the application of those ideas to children in the home, to adoption, fostering and childminding, to playgroups and nurseries, to learning and testing in school, and to some methods of therapy.

If you are interested in how children learn, in child psychology, and the various perspectives that have been advanced concerning this area of study, then you'll probably find this book interesting.
It's well written, quite substantial, and serves as a useful introduction.
I would recommend this book to anybody who has an interest in child development, regardless of whether they are studying psychology as an academic subject, just for personal interest, or purely just because they have an interest in the way that children will grow up and how they learn new skills. A fantastic buy and worth its weight in gold!
