    This is an outstanding overview of just what the title says the Cultural nature of human development. It is great starting place for anyone curious about how kids grow up, schooling, parenting and many other topics. This book treats several aspects of child development in a uniquely culturally responsible way, explaining that culture is an omnipresent aspect of every child's growing up. By seeing the ways in which culture shapes families lives in other cultures we are enabled to see how our own culture shapes our lives. My advisor wrote it!

    Tough to get through but valuable information about culture and racism that many of us don't realize goes on right under our noses. It really opens your horizons about how the word "culture" is defined.

    Buen libro para conocer las investigaciones sobre el desarrollo cultural de los humanos, pero para mi gusto le falta profundidad teĆ³rica.

    A fascinating look at how our cultural background makes us who we are. Not easy to read, but really made me question my own cultural assumptions, and gave me insights into other cultures, particularly Mayan culture (Rogoff's own area of expertise), but also Inuit and Native American ways of doing and being.

    This book continually made me rethink cultural assumptions that I'd been unknowingly toting around. It has given me a new perspective on and a new approach to facilitating children's development. In spite of its academic nature, this book is not difficult to read and has few dull moments. If you ever plan on working with or raising children, or just have a desire to better understand your own and a myriad of other cultural practices, I would strongly recommend this book.

    Again, had to read this one for school. It was full of a lot of great information on the different cultural history of America and how this diversity can create problems, but can also be an immense benefit. Since I had to read it for school I wasn't that enthused about it, but it was still a beneficial read if you are looking for something like this.

    Rogoff takes a look at human development across multiple cultures and brings to light realities of the falsehoods that can exist in our own thinking regarding "normal" human development. She combines her own research and the research of others on human development in an eloquent and fascinating manner. Excellent read if you are interested in cross cultural research.

    Required reading for HDP 133 - Socio-Cultural Foundations at UCSD. Interesting material, stuffy presentation. Best when coupled with class lectures to explain less obvious connections and definitions.

    why do psychologists write so badly? this must be the most redundant book on earth. oh the torture of others choosing what you read! (was that dramatic enough?) There is kind of an awesome picture of a 2 year old using a machete other than this, not so exciting.

    An 11 month old baby uses a machete to cut a fruit. How is this possible? Barbara Rogoff goes into depth about how one's culture influences how one learns. She provides insight on how we learn and differences in the academic and social aspect of various cultures.

    This extensively-researched book by Barbara Rogoff shows that the nature vs. nurture question is a false dichotomy. Human development is heavily influenced by our unique surroundings and our culture. Culture and human practices in learning change over time.

    A friend said the research findings discussed in this book "were obvious," but I recommend it for anyone raising young children or railing against society/others' behavior. The prose: enjoyable yet scholarly.

    Excellent book. This should be required reading for all psychology and education students! It is very readable, clear, and includes many opportunities to do further readings.

    So wait a minute, you're saying culture plays a role in cognitive development!!?!?All sarcasm aside, it is a very interesting discussion into the role of culture in cognitive development.
