Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Siegler proposes a paradigmatic shift in the field of child development, away from the study of 'essences' and toward the study of change. . . . The results are intriguing and perhaps revolutionary--must-reading for professionals in the field of cognition."--Choice

"This is one of those rare books that promises to change the way that psychologists view the central problem of developmental psychology. . .Siegler provides a cogent and convincing argument that variability is a constant in thought at all levels and provides the key to cutting through to the problem of cognitive change. . . Few will be able to read it without considering how to apply this model and methods to their own domain of interest." --Kevin Miller, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
