Review:

Prof Stuart-Hamilton has expertly crafted this easily accessible introduction to the psychology of ageing. His keen use of everyday terminology blends comprehensible prose with core concepts to open the field to interested novices seeking to expand their understanding or indeed enter into the world of psycho-gerontology. He addresses some of the main issues in the field with an equal and balanced evidence-based approach, no doubt an excellent entry level book for international bookshelves. --Dr Paul Nash, Centre for Innovative Ageing, Swansea University

A knowledge of the psychology of ageing is crucial to understanding the implications for us all of living in an ageing society. This book admirably fulfils its aim of providing a lively introduction to the subject. Not only is the author an acknowledged expert on ageing, he also writes in a highly readable and memorable style. --Peter G. Coleman, Emeritus Professor of Psychogerontology, University of Southampton, UK
