Worth the price
This book is so worth the price. It's organized perfectly and holds so much information. This is definitely a book that I'll keep with me for as long as it'll hold up. Even though I'm not studying to become a clinical psychologist or psychotherapist, I'll be researching developmental psychology and this will come in handy!
It's a useful reference, if you want the hardback version
I probably didn't need the hardback but I got it since it was a symbol of the start of my new career and it'll be useful until they update. I love books rather than e-books, things stay in my mind better. This is well made and if you got it you know why you wanted it. Unfortunately the ink gets a little smudgy if you highlight in it!
