Human Development ISBN 9780073370163 by Diane Papalia, Sally Olds, and Ruth Feldman is an introductory textbook about the unique psychology and development of humans throughout the lifespan. Often praised for its extensive research on the impact of culture on development, it effectively combines real-life applications and classical developmental theories, making students appreciate the subject even more. Authors Papalia, Olds, and Feldman tackle start the book with an explanation of the beginning of life, and then goes on to explicate each ‘human life phase' as influenced by cognitive, physical, psychosocial development. This material gives students a closer look at how brain development and other changes in the body define early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle adulthood, late adulthood, and finally, the end of life. Apart from these changes, this handy reference also tackles what prompts humans to change (from biological reasons to environmental causes). The authors, Diane Papalia (a teacher), Sally Wendkos (a professional writer), and Ruth Feldman (an educator and writer) were able to make a very thorough and informative guide to the most important junctures in growth and maturity. Already on its 11th edition, Human Development features new additions such as ‘Research in Action,' which highlights timely and interesting topics, plus an enhanced and updated research on evolutionary psychology and brain development. The book no only offers extensive information on human development but also encourages students and readers to apply what they have learned to everyday living. Human Development is written in and engaging style, making it easy for entry level students to understand.
