I took a correspondence course in developmental psychology many years ago, and I managed to hang on to the textbook in case I should ever get a desire to reread it. Very good decision. This book provides a wealth of information on the human stages of development based on current and historical research. Particularly interesting, and particularly encouraging, were the chapters on late adulthood and aging, which suggest that this time of life need not be a time of inevitable decline. This was definitely one of the better psych courses I have taken, both for its usefulness and its intrinsic interest.
