"I view this textbook as better than the competitors. I'm excited about the overall organization and treatment. . . . The author raises studies, research, points with a reason-the book takes research seriously. One advantage of the book is that it is completely unlike any other introductory book for developmental psychology." --Ori Friedman, University of Waterloo
"Child Development: Perspectives in Developmental Psychology discusses the most recent research on cognitive, social, and gender development and makes it clear that the current state of developmental psychology is no longer whether some ability is shaped by nature or nurture, but rather how it is shaped jointly by both . . . I am really excited about this textbook." --FangFang Li, University of Lethbridge
