Editorial Reviews


Depp and Jeste s book is a brilliant account of successful cognitive and emotional aging. The focus on success, and on success in particular in cognitive and emotional realms, is a most welcome departure from accounts focusing on pathology. Jeste and Depp have enlisted foremost experts on behavioral and psychosocial aspects of aging, biological aspects, and prevention and intervention strategies, with each chapter not only laying out the most recent research, but also summarizing with key points and recommended reading. This book will be of great use not only to geriatric researchers, but also to practicing doctors and other clinicians who treat a geriatric population. Indeed, the book, written in a clear and accessible way, might appeal to a general public that is keenly interested in successful aging. Likely to be a key text on successful aging for many years to come a real tour de force. --Elyn R. Saks, J.D., Orrin B. Evans Professor of Law, Psychology, and Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law; Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, School of

In Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging by Jeste and Depp have assembled a distinguished set of experts to consider an age-old question: How does one achieve a long and satisfying life? Drawing on cutting edge research, the answers span molecules and genes to social relationships and spirituality. This unique handbook offers fresh and thoughtful insights into aging and human development. --Laura L. Carstensen, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and the Fairleigh S. Dickinson Jr. Professor in Public Policy

Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging is a fascinating, informative, and compelling read that presents a broad based approach to cognitive and emotional aging and the timing couldn t be better as baby boomers are poised to come of age . Chapters, which cover behavioral and psychosocial, biological and prevention and intervention strategies, are authored by experts in the field and are cutting edge, well-written, and well documented. The final chapter, a summary of the book, contains many useful recommendations. --Kathleen C. Buckwalter, Ph.D., RN, FAAN, Sally Mathis Hartwig Professor of Gerontological Nursing Research, Director, The University of Iowa John A. Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence

From the Inside Flap

The next two decades will see a profound demographic transformation toward an aging population on a scale never seen before in the entire human history. There have been recent scientific findings on healthy brain aging that have challenged the centuries-old thinking, paving the way for new strategies to maintain and enhance cognitive abilities, functioning, and well-being in older age. From topics as diverse as genes and molecular building blocks to physical exercise, nutrition, wisdom, and spirituality, the editors of Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging have gathered the foremost experts in aging research to provide the science of healthy brain aging in practical terms. This book should prove invaluable to clinicians, scientists, students, and anyone with a desire to learn more about how to increase the odds of successful cognitive and emotional aging.
