"I found the foundational chapters [of the book] absorbing; they are well written and engaging. These chapters tended to offer a very effective presentation of the history and theoretical background of each therapeutic approachEL.Scholarly efforts such as these will do much to integrate our science and practice and perhaps enhance the day-to-day lives of older persons and their families who are not only asking for such advancements, but indeed demanding them." -The Gerontologist
