Feel intimidated by the life-span course? You're in good hands with HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: A LIFE-SPAN VIEW, 8th Edition, as your guide. Complete, yet succinct and filled with real-life examples that aid understanding, the text has proven its ability to capture students' interest while introducing them to the issues, forces, and outcomes that make us who we are.
