Promotional Information

"This is an encyclopaedic primer on the psychology of ageing, written with a sense of humour and self-irony. The book is a very personal tour de force, a journey through the psychology, medicine and sociology of ageing by a veritable renaissance man, who retains his humility and self-deprecating humour. A must-read for professionals and lay people interested in ageing and how it affects our lives." - Klaus Ebmeier, Foundation Professor of Old Age Psychiatry, University of Oxford, UK "Gary Christopher's book is an extremely useful overview of the psychology of ageing. With an emphasis on cognitive neuropsychology and memory, and a novel chapter on neurodevelopmental disorders in ageing, this book will provide those studying the cognitive psychology of ageing with a well-written summary of a number of important issues in one convenient place." - Beverly A. Roberts, Centre for Cognitive Ageing and Cognitive Epidemiology, University of Edinburgh, UK "This is an informative, easy to read book on ageing, covering the positive and negative changes associated with ageing, and introducing topics not usually found in other books." - Lynn McInnes, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Northumbria University, UK
