I use the book because I am able to get my students to read it and that is always a plus. The author writes well and gives great examples and illustrations of specific points and topics. I prefer it over others I have used.--Vernell Larkin, Hopkinsville Community College

"Best text I have reviewed and I have reviewed virtually all of the most popular texts in the field. The instructor's manual is par excellence. It is in a class all its own. Nothing even comes in a close second." —Dan Grangaard, Austin Community College"Berger text is my favorite textbook - students see themselves - not just old white folks talking about old research." —Patricia Jolley, Austin Community College "If teaching a lifespan development course, this text is all you need. It includes all of the information (and more) you could ever want for teaching a full lifespan approach." —Melissa Ralston, University of Florida "This book includes everything you would want to teach your developmental students...and more." —Melissa Bright, University of Florida"This book is about the best on the market. It has a new companion learning tool which is LaunchPad. Students love it!"—Faith Edwards, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh"I have been using this particular text for more than 10 years. It has remained current. It engages students, and is easy to understand. What this author does better than most is to present the information in an almost conversational style. Students appreciate this and I find that it motivates them to read the text more thoroughly." —Dani Hodge, California State University, San Bernardino "She has done it again! My students love using her text and I have been told by many that they keep the text as reference for later." —Raquel Henry, Lone Star College-Kingwood"I have been using Berger's textbook for 11 years. It is, by far, the best, most readable, textbook on lifespan development I have found." —Richard Marmer, American River College“Her writing style is particularly accessible, and her simple explanations of complex terminology are quite refreshing. The varied features that she integrates throughout the text help elaborate or give greater insight...She integrates various cultural perspectives throughout the text that help students grasp the complexity of particular issues.”—Valerie Flores, Loyola University Chicago
