Excellent primer on the topic
on March 27, 1999
This book covers, in very good depth, the life cycle from youth through old age. Backed up by plenty of research and statistics, the look is more of one of cold hard fact than of heart, but this is helpful for those just entering gerontology. I was given this text by my supervisor upon entry into a senior residential facility, and I felt I certainly gained from it. Maybe not as handy to those well-read on the topic, but a very good basic guide and introduction. Recommended.
