"An alphabetical listing of sources and issues of particular interest to older people. This new updated edition is useful, comprehensive, and well-written." -- Arkansas Times "Intended for general readers, this volume clearly explains various aspects of aging in nontechnical language. Topical coverage is very broad, and the selection of subjects appears to reflect both currently popular areas and the authors' own interests." -- Choice From reviews of the first edition: "The Graying of America represents a Herculean effort to educate patients... It is an educational and informational resource, easy to read, practical and useful." -- Eugene J. Rogers, M.D., Chicago Medicine "Readily accessible and easily understood by general readers, this source is highly recommended for college and university libraries, and for any reader interested in aging, old age, or gerontology in the contemporary U.S." -- Choiceshow more
