Core Concepts. Recognizing the difficulty of covering the sheer volume of information contained in comprehensive Life-Span texts, Essentials of Life-Span Development is a streamlined text that chronologically captures the core, essential concepts of life-span development.
Applications Focus. Many students enrolled in the life-span course major in a variety of subjects. For these students, Essentials of Life-Span Development gives the material in the course personal meaning. This is done both through numerous applied examples throughout the text and through "How Would You...?" questions, which present essential ideas in a variety of contexts for students of varying backgrounds and interests.
Strong Research. As with his other successful texts, John Santrock has infused Essentials of Life-Span Development with the most current research in the field. Faculty do not need to spend time outside of class gathering the latest research.
