Invitation to the Life Span
Check out a preview.
KATHLEEN STASSEN BERGER’s bestselling textbooks are un-matched for the engrossing, culturally inclusive way they communicate the essential science of human development. But that does not even begin to convey what the Berger experience is: What makes these bestselling textbooks so distinctive is the unmistakable presence of KATHLEEN STASSEN BERGER on every page, in writing that continually draws on the author’s teaching and family life to demonstrate a remarkable understanding not just of the field, but of students’ questions, their concerns, and their lives.
The distinctive, definitive BERGER touch is evident throughout her new textbook, Invitation to the Life Span. This brief, original, 15-chapter textbook was created from page 1 to address the challenges teachers and students face when covering the entire life span in a semester (or even a quarter!). The hallmark Berger qualities are all here—the relatable presentation of research, the inclusive approach to world cultures, the study help that builds critical thinking and observational skills, the outstanding media and supplements—and all held together with Berger’s skill in bringing students and the science together.

Had to use this for my psychology 240 class. If you actually read it, it's pretty interesting. It's easy to get into if you're able to relate it to yourself. Read full review
Review: Invitation to the Life SpanUser Review - Shadow - Goodreads
Have had worse psych text books, but honestly, it's kind of boring and wordy for no reason. Also, it seems to be laid out like a lot of philosophy and science books...that is, completely random order that does not aid in retention. If you have to read it, just get through it is my suggestion. Read full review
