Editorial Reviews


"In the 40 plus years that I have been in the field, there has been an explosion of books and articles. Few have been as academically sound as this one. It is truly an excellent effort...an excellent text. It is an important contribution to the field. While it is decidedly academic and would greatly serve those in academia, it has many gems for those who are not academic. It is a must for professionals in the field, as well as academics. I highly recommend this book." - Gerry Cox, Ph.D., Illness, Crisis & Loss

"I truly enjoyed this book. The authors' language and organization exhibit clarity and made for an easy read. It was very informative and would be a perfect textbook for a gerontology course or a bioethics course. This book will greatly benefit health professionals, educators, students, and people dealing with end-of-life decisions about themselves or loved ones." - Shilpa Shashidhara, PhD., MABMH, University of North Texas, in Activities, Adaptation and Aging
