The book does an ok job of introducing what social gerontology is. However, I find some features of the book annoying. For instance, I see quite a few typos. The chapter on the economics of aging switches back and forth between Chapter 14 and Chapter 15.

I found this book to be alright in explaining most topics, but when I found new theories or other concepts not generally known by the public, they seemed to skim right over these concepts. It was frustrating when I would be reading or studying for class and find not enough information on some concepts. Overall it is a good book and explains things well with great personal excerpts from different cultures and races. If you are in a class that requires this book, I suggest buying it. It is something I will keep even when the semester is over.

The book is pretty good about going into detail. It has good information on the baby boomers as well.
