Robert Plomin (Author), John C. The book is well-written and its concepts are easily grasped. The book is especially valuable for those just getting aquainted with behavior genetics because it describes, in easy-to-read terms, some of the basic statistical and conceptual concepts used in quantitative genetics. The book details the Colorado Adoption Project. Adoption, along with the study of twins, is one of the basic, and best, ways to infer genetic influence. R Plomin, JC DeFries, DW Fulker.

Quantitative genetics also provides powerful methods to address questions of change and continuity which are helpfully introduced in this study.

The largest and longest longitudinal adoption study is the Colorado Adoption Project, which has generated much of the rich data on the progress from infancy to early childhood on which the authors draw throughout this 1988 book. Their conclusions about what we know, and what we need to learn, about the origins of individual differences will interest a wide range of readers.

In light of work by quantitative geneticists, the authors reconsider the interaction of heredity and environment in the development of individual differences during infancy and early childhood. Quantitative genetics offers a general theory of the development of individual differences that suggests novel concepts and research strategies: the idea that genetic influences operate in age-to-age change as well as in continuity, for example. Quantitative genetics also provides powerful methods to address questions of change and continuity which are helpfully introduced in this study. Longitudinal quantitative genetic research is essential to the understanding of developmental change and continuity. The largest and longes longitudinal adoption study is the Colorado Adoption Project, which has generated much of the rich data on the progress from infancy to early childhood on which the authors draw throughout the book.
