Abstract: An 8 page comparison of Kathleen Berger's The Developing Person Through the Life Span and Marjorie Taylor's Imaginary Companions and the Children Who Create Them. These two very different books each address the way that human personality develops. Berger takes a wide perspective that encompasses the way human beings develop over the course of a lifetime. Taylor's book, on the other hand, has a narrow focus on one particular aspect of childhood development, i.e. the way children use fantasy and create imaginary companions. While these books are, of course, very different due to these differences in perspective, they also have similarities in content, which make them complementary in many respects. No additional sources cited.
