When you open the book and begin reading from the Preface, you are quietly introduced to Laurence Steinberg and recognize immediately his apparent wisdom and experience in the subject of adolescence. The content of the surprisingly thin 500-page book is a treasure for anyone who is willing to dispel old myths of adolescent behavior and to consider the scientific evidence we have to date. The book’s layout and design are “reader-friendly” and appropriate for use by the hurried professional.

This textbook by Steinberg sets the standard for texts in the psychology of adolescence. Steinberg has distinguished himself not only as one of the major researchers in the area of adolescent development, but as a writer who can translate scientific jargon into language that is accessible. This text is well-written, well-organized, and contains most of the important research on adolescence.
