Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a very readable narrative account, thanks to the authors' decision to place all tables, figures, and statistical information in an appendix. Highly recommended; all levels."—Choice, February 2002

"In a remarkable odyssey spanning some forty years, Emmy Werner and Ruth Smith seek answers to two fundamental questions: (a) what are the long-term effects of adverse perinatal and early child-rearing conditions on an individuals physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development at midlife? and (b) what factors may serve as buffers against such early childhood adversities' . . . Werner and Smith . . . detail midlife outcomes for specific high-risk subgroups of individuals during adolescence. . . . The reader learns of the remarkable power of recovery by midlife for most of these troubled or learning-disabled teens. . . . The third and four decades of life had opened many new opportunities and possibilities."—Jane Kroger, University of Tromso, Contemporary Psychology, 48:5, 2003

"Journeys from Childhood to Midlife: Risk, Resilience, and Recovery is a remarkable opportunity for all of us to see the development of resilience and coping systems in the underprivileged children of Kauai. Emmy Werner and Ruth Smith's scholarship and clarity provide a firm base for understanding the psychodynamics of these processes and lead us to opportunities for intervention."—T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

"For decades no student of resilience could afford to miss Emmy Werner's pioneering study of the children of Kauai. This book offers the next important chapter in that project, and it tells an important story about what it means to be human, struggling to become whole in the face of adversity. It is a story both sobering and inspiring."—James Garbarino, author of Parents Under Siege: Why You are the Solution, Not the Problem, in Your Child's Life and Elizabeth Lee Vincent Professor of Human Development at Cornell University

"This is a remarkable book about a remarkable study describing life and development over forty years. The authors have identified risk and protective influences which contribute to the development paths of individuals as they move from childhood into midlife. Importantly, the message is one of hope."—Barbara Keogh,University of California, Los Angeles
