Life-Span Human Development - ISBN 9781111342739 is an introductory-level textbook ideal for incoming students of biology and related fields. Lauded for its excellent pedagogical features, this edition has been updated with strong research and up-to-date information. Students will have an easy time understanding human development as the book is structured in a chronological order, starting from infancy to death. Carol K. Sigelman and Elizabeth A. Rider offer a straightforward, comprehensive, and concise reference, starting off with a bird's eve view of life-span human development and continuing on to the theories of human development, genes, environment, and development. Prenatal development and birth, health and physical development, sensation, perception, and attention, cognition, memory and information processing, and intelligence and creativity are also discussed in great detail in the textbook. It covers language and education, self and personality, gender roles and sexuality, social cognition and moral development, attachment and relationships, and the family. The authors dedicate chapters to developmental psychopathology and death. The appendix is very useful; it even gives students information on possible careers in the field. This book comes with a helpful web tutor as well as data exercises, videos, quizzes, and a study guide for those interested in reviewing on their own. Lecturers are given exclusive access to videos and manuals, plus a test bank. Authors Sigelman and Rider are psychology experts; Sigelman is a professor of psychology and associate vice president for research at The George Washington University, while Rider is professor of psychology at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania.
