The biological clock is of concern to all women over 35 who want to combine careers and motherhood. Finally, for these women, their families, and the health professionals who care for them, there is a readable book explaining what makes the clock tick. It is also timely and important because older mothers make up the fastest-growing group of parents. The authors, who are psychologists, provide objective findings as well as psychological perspectives about older mothers. They illustrate their points with case histories and powerful, evocative interviews, carefully documenting research and other facts and figures. Answering such questions as, "Who has babies after 35?," "What are the risks?," and "Are older mothers better?," their book is a rich source of information about the experience of later motherhood. A comprehensive bibliography is included. Highly recommended for all public libraries and larger academic and health sciences collections.?Linda M.G.
