The new edition of Fundamentals of Developmental Psychology will be out on 1st November!
I am really thrilled that it is popular enough to warrant a second edition. It is great to be excited about something, try to communicate that excitement and find that you have not missed the mark completely.
The reviews have been brilliant, encouraging and quite humbling so far. I hope that my students will like it, too!
Here are some of the things said about it. Full details on the Publisher’s website.
“Mitchell and Ziegler’s revised Fundamentals of Developmental Psychology is a delight. Whilst certain to become the standard text for many introductory and foundation courses in developmental psychology, it will also have a much broader appeal to professionals in health, education and social work. Throughout the book the authors develop their arguments utilizing a clever balance of classic texts and new research evidence to guide the reader through the big issues in developmental psychology. Their excellent style draws you in and makes learning fun.”– David Coghill, University of Dundee, UK
“This is an excellent introduction to the field of developmental psychology. I especially liked its coverage of developmental disorders, including ADHD, autism, SLI, and Williams Syndrome.” – Robert Siegler, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
“Mitchell and Ziegler’s Fundamentals of Developmental Psychology is an engaging introduction to the field of child development, current knowledge in the area, and the historical figures who brought us there. The addition of new chapters has added to the value of the book by introducing a greater discussion of scientific methodology, and by addressing developmental disorders.” – Karen Turner, University of Queensland, Australia
“This book covers all the basic topics one would expect in an introductory textbook of this sort. The authors are clearly experts in the field – their discussion of theory and methodology is detailed and appropriate, and the literature referenced is current. The book also contains chapters on specific topics that I have not seen in other textbooks, and I think the additions and revisions to this new edition have strengthened the book considerably. The result is a clear, thorough, and engaging introduction to the key ideas and methods of developmental psychology.” – David Peebles, University of Huddersfield, UK
