Development Through Life: A Psychosocial Approach
Newman and Newman use a chronological approach to present development across the life span, drawing on the psychosocial theory of Erik Erikson to provide a conceptual framework for the text. The authors address physical, intellectual, social, and emotional growth in all life stages, focusing on the idea that development results from the interdependence of these areas at every stage, and placing special emphasis on optimal development through life.

I am a grad student in psychology and psychotherapy. I used this fabulous book for my Human Behavior class when I wanted to get a better idea of Eriksonian theories, which are the meat of this book. The book is extremely well written, clear, and carefully organized. It is full of lovingly designed, clear and arranged diagrams that assist the reader in understanding the material. Finally a book that is a pleasure to read!
About the other review...If you don't like developmental psychology, don't give one bitter star to a well-written book when no matter what you would read in the subject wouldn't make any difference. People worked hard for this one!!
