“A broad, accessible text that includes features that appeal to today's diverse college students.”
“Topics are well organized. Research is presented fairly and both sides are represented.”
“The text does a nice job of discussion adolescent development within context. It integrates multiple developmental processes within the topic (e.g., how impulsiveness relates to media consumption). It's a good level for undergraduate and perhaps master's students.”
“This book is geared to the adolescent and helps them to understand the many facets of being an adolescent. It is engaging, contains unbiased and timely information.”
“Accessible adolescent psych text that make deliberate effort to include cultural, critical and biological perspectives.”
