While maintaining these hallmarks, this revision includes increased coverage of adulthood and aging, a new “Interlude” feature on applications, and updated research with more 21st-century citations than ever before.

    Never again

    I will never again order a book online. I paid extra, just to get the book faster. And it still didn't arrive. I live in New Jersey, where the book is coming from but I still didn't get it. I hope people think twice before ordering a book. I tried to save money, but I guess this is what I get.
