Description: From preface:
...Change has created a more complex world today, but it has also created one that is potentially more exciting, challenging, and fulfilling. Our world today is characterized by variety: in job opportunities, life styles, means of interpersonal communication, and technological advancements designed to make life easier. People today are faced with more choices than we faced as college students; life is more guided by personal choice than by rules and roles of society, some of which were well-outdated and counterproductive. The potential to control one's destiny seems much greater today.
The new freedom, however, can be either a blessing or a nightmare. People must be aware of their choices and know how to use their freedom or they may become lost and confused. Technology can be the spice of life only to the extent that people know how to use it productively.
...The rapidity of change in the modern world has raised new issues and challenges for personal and interpersonal adjustment.
...A common complaint is that people have trouble making and keeping close friends. Communication between individuals is often superficial and meaningless.
Nice used textbook. Some highlighting. A slight musty smell. I'm airing it.
