The Story of Human Development creates an engaging and original framework by integrating material on the typical individual's physical, cognitive, emotional, and social developments with how they might develop in different environmental contexts.


Faced with the challenge of authoring a text that could be current, scholarly, and comprehensive while also being readable and practical, authors Debra Poole, Amye Warren, and Narina Nuñez created The Story of Human Development 1.e, a far departure from the ordinary human development text. By organizing the text with each age bracket represented by a two-chapter pair, the authors are able to examine all aspects of the development process. With a narrative infused with the rich and diverse stories of people’s lives, compelling arrangement, unique connecting summaries, and a focus on guiding developmental principles, this text puts the science of human development into a framework that better explains and explores how a whole person develops within varying environmental contexts.
