I read this book for a Developmental Psychology course and have had mixed feelings about the text. The content delivered in the book is colorful, interesting, and well-written. However, a problem lies in the quantity of content - there's just too much! Most chapters are 40-50 pages of dense information. No matter how interesting the topic may be, it's very difficult to read even just a chapter in one day. I find that this is a problem afflicting older-version books. This text is in its eighth edition, so I imagine that for the author, new content has been easier to add than to omit old content.

I must emphasize that the book is incredibly well-written. I do not fancy myself having children, and generally don't think about what children think about, but this text made all of its points fairly interesting. Even the more rote information on theory is kept engaging by placing key points in figures or tables alongside the text.

One thing that struck me was the difficulty in understanding who the author was communicating to. The tone of the text was not towards undergraduate students, who would be the majority of people reading it. Instead, it almost feels extended to the concerned parent, which is weird. Even if a parent were wildly interested in how their child was developing, this text is hardly one I would recommend for someone asking for advice on child development. There's just too much information and experimental evidence for presented points for that audience to be relevant.

Finally, this is the first unbound book I've bought (the version you may buy may be bound), but I do not see the point of this publishing trick. I guess the logic is that by not binding the pages, the publisher saves money and therefore sells the book a little cheaper. I did not save much money by doing this, and having to keep the text in a bulky three-ring binder is an annoyance. The resale value on an unbound text has to be lower than an equivalent bound text. If given the option, buy the bound version.
