This book presents a multidisciplinary perspective on social aging. It takes the approach of the older person in context, and how age-related changes in the biological, functional, and psychological domains can influence the older person's interactions with his/her social and physical environment. We see our parents and grandparents go through it. We even see ourselves go through it. As we get older, we enter a distinct stage of life, complete with its own biological issues and psychological and social ones too. Yet most books on social aging ignore the psychological and biological aspects of aging that make the social issues so important.

The book has good information in it. The quality of the book is less than it should be for the cost of the book. The books bindings separate between signatures. I had to return my first book for various reasons including this. I replaced it by purchasing a new book, and it immediately started to have problems here. It seems to be an issue with the book. Hopeful with newer runs of the book this will be taken care of.

all black & white - dry content. if you are going to write a book & charge people, put some color in the text and some more pictures. learning about aging is interesting, so make the book more interesting.

I bought this book for a class I was taking. It does come in different editions (with the same cover) so be sure to check.
This book reads like a textbook, so I did tire of that format. Lots of pertinent information for a senior who might not have any other resources.

This book covers multiple aspects of aging. Content is quality and well researched. Unfortunately, the publisher must not have taken into consideration the glossy pages when printing the book. Personally, I find it hard to read because of the glare created with glossy finish on each page. This should be changed for future editions; consider the target population and content of the book if this is confusing at all. Different paper may also be more economical and provide a more attractive price.

Great deal. Used but in good condition. Arrived as promised. Saved about $100 over the school's bookstore used price--exactly the same textbook. Vast content about our older population and the heartbreaking reality, but very insightful with a bittersweet outlook. Quite the education and journey.

I read this book throughout my semester, and it was just fine. It is easy to read and comprehend. HOWEVER, I rented this text through Amazon (eCampus/Great Book Rentals) and received it in typical used condition. I returned the book on time and in the exact same condition as I received it. To my surprise, I received a big, fat juicy bill of $176 saying I had damaged the binding. FALSE. Looks to me like this rental company is looking to take advantage of college students. Luckily Amazon refuted the charge and I will be receiving a refund. Please be cautious and take photos of the texts you rent the day you receive it in the mail.

This book was not in good shape. It had a lot of poorly underlined parts and many notes scrawled haphazardly in the margins. I expected more from an expensive rental than this. The book itself is excellent and came promptly, but I want a better copy, please. Margaret

Text covers every aspect of aging. Its content is organized and presented for the student to see a progression on the subject i.e. Why do we study field to modern day politics on the population. The subject has always been of interest to this reviewer especially since this student lives in the Northern Florida (Pennsylvania) so older citizens are a great part of the small rural towns making up this Commonwealth. Authors should be complimented for the ninth edition's coverage.
