Summary

Skilled and enthusiastic authors, Kail and Cavanaugh bring their expertise in child development (Kail) and adulthood/aging (Cavanaugh) to bear on the story of the human lifespan. The authors employ a four-part structure to deliver, in 16 manageable chapters, a streamlined account of childhood, the school years, early adulthood, and beyond. This structure eliminates the redundancy found in traditional texts that describe the lifespan in a chronological fashion. As a result, readers experience an accurate and lively depiction of development that leaves them with a better sense of the most intriguing, intricate, and universal experience of humanity...life.
