Help students understand how culture impacts development- and why it matters.


As far as textbooks go, I really, really enjoyed this one. It was easy to read, interesting and I ended up reading a lot of it for the pure enjoyment. Not sure how much I actually absorbed, but I definitely enjoyed the adventure.

I’m not sure if it was the bright outlay of this textbook, the interesting topic or just the style of writing. But this was one of those textbooks that was really accessible and it wasn’t filled with information that you had to read twice to get your head around.

Overall, this was an enjoyable and intriguing insight into developmental psychology. It was completely logical in its outlay – travelling from conception through to death. And filled with case studies, information and facts that I will probably look back on in the future.
