User Review  - June6Bug - LibraryThing

Very dated but readable for a textbook; seems like a decent basic overview of the human life cycle, with research up to about 1990 (published in 1992). I give it two stars because, while I imagine the book was good for its time, surely more up-to-date works have come out in the last fifteen years. Read full review
