"'Ian Stuart-Hamilton's text...has...become a "classic" text in its field...a very readable and academically accessible introductory textbook... Stuart-Hamilton's excitement for the potential developments in the area of psychogerontology is perhaps the greatest strength of this textbook. It is likely to engage student interest at undergraduate level and provide a basic platform from which further postgraduate study may progress. For either group, it is unlikely that students will come away from a reading of the text without at least some excitement for "what may be" in the future of gerontology.' - Education and Ageing 'Unquestionably the best, most authoritative introductory review of the cognitive psychology of ageing...should be on the essential reading list for clinical psychologists in training.' - The Psychologist 'It is difficult to find a single area of omission - the range of this book seems to cover every possible perspective. As an introductory text, [it] is currently unrivalled, and I feel that it is destined to become a classic. I strongly recommend the book to anyone wishing to gain an understanding into the psychological processes of ageing.' - Nursing Standard 'I loved it. This...is so beautifully written it gave me sleep deprivation. The style is engaging - a mixture of apparently well reviewed research, embellished with the author's personal viewpoints. The result is...pleasingly discursive and even witty. I found myself absorbing masses of information... I definitely recommend it as part of the Old Age Psychiatrist's bench library and my trainees will be encouraged to add it to their list for training.' - International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry"
