What Reviewers Are Saying
Again, you have written one of the best textbooks I have ever reviewed. You do a great job of using research-based material, provide clear statements describing complicated issues, provide useful summaries, and write in a way that enhances student interest and learning. In fact, I would suggest that faculty using your text end up learning even more than the students who read the book.
Dale Lund, California State University, San Bernardino
The writing style is extremely fluid, easy to read, and engaging.
Cheryl Anagnopoulos, Black Hills State University
Diversity and multicultural coverage is a REAL strength of the text.
Aurora Sherman, (Oregon State University
The research is absolutely current, relevant, and well-integrated throughout the text.
Lori Bica, University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire
I think students need stories to serve as frameworks for thinking about developmental concepts, and this text provides that.
Mary Ann Erickson, Ithaca College
Laura Berk has included more diversity content (in both regular text and various boxes) than in any other comparable text. Bravo for Berk.
Tracie Blumentritt, (University of Wisconsin La Crosse

after a couple days, they cancelled my order. they didn't provide a reason. i needed this for class; they should've cancelled it as soon as the order was placed, not after a couple days waiting for it to come in the mail.Was this review helpful?

The title specifically states that it is the 5th edition. After I ordered the book and got my email it said the 4th edition was being sent to me and that it was the My developmental lab series. I am not happy about my first experience with this site. I have emailed the seller, hopefully this can be resolved quickly.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
