  • Concise with current views on life development psychology.
    I used this book in our Life Development Psychology. In the course of my study, everything I needed to know is in the book. Feldman is very thorough and organized. I have read other books on this subject in our library but by far this is a superior book. This book deserves 5 stars....more info
  • Comprehensive Overview
    A thoroughly researched work that is current with modern trends. Although a Christian health worker might be disappointed with its occasional evolutionary/humanistic undertone, the book nonetheless paints a clear and organized picture of all the levels of life span. ...more info

  • Wrong edition
    I was not pleased with the item received - it was supposed to be the 4th Edition, however I received the 3rd Edition. I did buy a new one and received credit for this, however it took longer than expected to finally get the correct book/edition....more info
  • The Most Well-Written Textbook I Have Ever Read, 5 STARS!
    This author, Robert S. Feldman, is a genius. He has finally found a way to write an interesting textbook! This textbook has something for every type of learner. There are plenty of colorful illustrations and pictures for the visual learner. He includes many stories to provide examples on the topics discussed in the book, for people who need reference to some real-life examples. Also, the book is easily readable and not boring, for people who tend to fall asleep while reading books.

    This book covers the processes we all go through from birth to death, so it easily relates to your own life and helps explain some things you probably never understood about yourself. I would recommend it even outside of college... it is just so interesting. There are a total of 19 chapters as listed below:

    1. An Introduction to Lifespan Development
    2. The Start of Life: Prenatal Development
    3. Birth and the Newborn Infant
    4. Physical Development in Infancy
    5. Cognitive Development in Infancy
    6. Social and Personality Development in Infancy
    7. Physical and Cognitive Development in the Preschool Years
    8. Social and Personality Development in the Preschool Years
    9. Physical and Cognitive Development in Middle Childhood
    10. Social and Personality Development in Middle Childhood
    11. Physical and Cognitive Development in Adolescence
    12. Social and personality Development in Adolescence
    13. Physical and Cognitive Development in Early Adulthood
    14. Social and Personality Development in Early Adulthood
    15. Physical and Cognitive Development in Middle Adulthood
    16. Social and Personality Development in Middle Adulthood
    17. Physical and Cognitive Development in Late Adulthood
    18. Social and Personality Development in Late Adulthood
    19. Death and Dying

    I thought the beginning chapters about children were particularly interesting. I would highly recommend this book to any parent, anyone about to become a parent, or anyone thinking about becoming a parent. The author talks about a lot of issues relating to learning and social development... something very important in life. Also, this is a new textbook published just this year so you are sure to get up-to-date information....more info

  • never received
    I never received this book they took money out of my account but never sent the book.The book was suppose to be new and I thought it would have came first out of all the books I ordered online but I was wrong. I wouldn't recommend this seller to anyone. Tried to wait on the book but I was getting further behind in my class work so I ended up going to buy it somewhere else. It has been almost three weeks I hope it doesn't come now because I don't need it all I need is my money back that I spent on the book. Thank you for nothing. Wanted to rate this with no stars but couldn't so I had to put one star but they don't deserve it. I even emailed the seller twice to see if something went wrong but they would not respond. So if you need something don't use this seller...more info
  • Great price, but be sure you are getting what you need
    Price was very good on this book, $40 less than at the school bookstore! No access code is included for MyDevelopmentLab, although the book is the MyDevelopmentLab series.

    My school didn't require that I have internet lab access, so for this class it was perfect - a lot less than the bookstore for the identical product, with no access code in either place.

    Not so with the statistic text I bought. I was required to have MyMathLab access, so even though I still got a better over all price buying through Amazon, I had to buy an access code from the lab site for an additional $25. If I had bought that text at the bookstore, it would have been bundled with the code....more info
    I'm in graduate school and needed this book with the Development Lab access code for my online course. Despite being advertised "MyDevelopmentLab Series", it did NOT include the access code. I attempted to go to the publisher's website to see if I could purchase the code, but they were "sold out"- funny, because it's a CODE and not a tangible item. You'd think they would just generate a code so that I could access the online features. So, I was behind in my class for about a month while I waited to receive my textbook, realized it wasn't what I needed, attempted to find another textbook, and sent this one back to Amazon. I'm still awaiting delivery confirmation so I can get my money back. The publisher and distributors of this book need to know that I was not the only one in my class who experienced this kind of problem- you've made using this textbook a real pain in the......more info
  • Development Across the Lifespan w/MyDevLab Series
    I was disappointed with the purchase of this textbook on The book was purchased new and was suppose to contain the Developmental Lab Series which it does not and I don't have the access code that is needed for my virtual college course. How can I obtain the access code for this book?...more info
  • This is not the textbook just a study guide.
    If you are looking for the text book for this course you are looking at the wrong book. All the reviews listed under this book speak glowingly of Feldman's approach to the subject but unless you are careful you will miss that they are talking about the hard cover textbook. This study guide may be helpful but only if you have the full text. Beware what you are buying....more info
  • Racist, Sexist, Dismissive of Anything but Biology
    Feldman's "well-researched" book is a classic human development book, written from a rich white man's view. He does very little to express race and gender as anything but biology. These two things are sociological constructs in addition to being somewhat biologically based. In my world, half-truths are still lies. This book has a lot of pictures of people from different cultures, with different phenotypes, et cetera. It does not walk the walk or talk the talk of a socially responsible take on human development and psychology. For instance he uses Freud to speak of gender roles- a man who named an entire stage of human development after the penis. Just a poor read overall. It felt like going back to high school biology class. Not much more than a survey book....more info
