Review by:
O. Spurgeon English

This book is a highly successful combination of a scientific approach to a problem in a popular style of writing. The author

has had a wide experience in counseling the problems of older people and is already known to many for having edited New Goals for Old Age and for having written many popular articles on the subject of aging. There are fifteen chapters dealing with such subjects as A Woman Grows Older, Jobs after Fifty, Love at Maturity, Can Age and Youth Be Friends?, A Philosophy for Maturity. The author shows that he not only knows older people and their problems but also has a deep understanding of the emotional development and the problems of all ages. The psychiatrist, social worker, pastor, or counselor in any field can recommend the book for reading by the patient or client with profit. It is both inspirational and informative for the aging person with a problem, as well as for anyone who tries to help him with it. It is a much needed book in an area of human adaptation which has been slow in gaining the attention it has merited.
