✏The Human Odyssey Book Summary : In The Human Odyssey: Life-Span Development, Third Edition, Paul S. Kaplan embarks the reader on a sweeping journey through life, examining the physical and intellectual changes we undergo from conception through death. Now thoroughly updated with more multicultural material and numerous new features, this book continues to skillfully build on the basic themes of life-span development. Kaplan's chronological approach allows the reader to examine the entire human life experience, whereas many life-span books are weighted in childhood and adolescence. And by putting experiences into context--such as the family, school and community, and culture--the author is able to include a level of applied information that consistently maintains student interest.
