The Journey of Adulthood
A conversational style and well-balanced blend of research findings, theory, and practical applications make this book a comprehensible guide to growth and development from young adulthood to old age. It clarifies a distorted view of aging, as seen by a society that is increasing in age, and promotes respect and admiration for older adults while giving youth a more realistic and positive look at their own future. Discussions on cultural, gender, and individual differences give meaning to material on prevention, compensation, gains, and losses. For anyone looking for practical knowledge on development in order to enhance their relationships with family members, or understanding of their own aging experience.
