Product Description

Review

“The greatest strengths are No Easy Answers”, “Research Report”, “Policy Questions”, & “The Real World” boxes. The organization of the textbook.”  ~Jeanine Pontes-Boelter, Sonoma State University

 

“The greatest strengths are the readability, the clear and concise presentation, and the brevity.”  ~ Linda Petroff, Central Community College    

 

“Engaging and does not overdo the technical language. The themed essays are timely and relevant and would spur student interest and discussion.” ~ Wanda Clark, South Plains College   

 

“Research is up-to-date and attempts were made to make the information relevant to today's students.” ~ Laura Pirazzi, San Jose State University  

 

“Clear, readable, interesting, good coverage, and reasonably short for a lifespan text.” ~ Stephanie Stein, Central Washington University     

 

“The authors do a good job of consolidating information, presenting interesting discussion topics, and providing students with opportunities to test their knowledge.” ~ Alisha Janowsky, University of Central Florida    

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Lifespan Developmentoffers strong coverage of the practical applications of lifespan development research within a student-centered approach that emphasizes self-assessment.

 

Students who wants to know the answer to the questions "What does current research say?" and "Why is this important?" will appreciate both the applied nature of this text and the clarity and rigor of the authors' presentation of current research.  An exceptional pedagogical package that ties the textbook to online MyDevelopmentLab study tools complements the student-centered approach of the book and offers students the benefit of frequent self-assessment.

Format: Paperback
I came across this book through my studies, amongst a selection of books on the same theme. Of them all, this is my favourite. Not only did this book support my academic studies, it has also become a personal favourite for browsing. As the title suggests it discusses human development from conception to death.
Helen Bee has been writing for over 70 years now. Her writing reflects her knowledge, understanding and the skills she has in expressing complex issues. She writes with humour and makes the content comfortable to read. The use of real life stories enables the reader to enjoy and easily understand a broad and complicated subject.
Having used this book for my own work, I now strongly reccommend it to students of child development, many of whom have expressed their gratefulness at finding such a valuable text that they could work with.
This book for myself has gone beyond the boundaries of studying. It is not unusual to find myself reading snippets for pleasure and I have recently refered to this book to help me understand a 'phase' that a family member has been having!
This book will be used for a long time.

I bought this book for my child care module and I find it to be very informative and easy to understand. However, it should be stated that this book is written and illustrated by American professionals and I have been aware that for my own studies I have been careful in essays when using references from the book. However, the overall content is good and I do like this book very much. It has been a useful addition to my now growing 'social work library'. It is not quite so relevant to those looking for texts solely to do with social work but is very useful for advising about overall birth-death human existence.

A detailed & interesting study on all aspects of life from newborn to the aged. The only disadvantage is that a table is needed to lay it on to read - it is very heavy & unwieldy to handle - should be in hardback. Note it is an American publication so all public health references are US & not UK directed

Good; still contains as much relevant information as the newer editions, minus the updated research obviously.
