Customer Reviews

worth getting text book  March 14, 2011

I rented this text book for a class but I enjoyed reading it. The text is very easy to read. The material covers all the major topics related to cognition, memory, development, illnesses, relationships, and end of life experiences. I would recommend the book for anyone with aging parents.

Adult Development and Aging: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Written within a biopsychosocial framework, Cavanaugh and Blanchard-Fields' best-selling textbook( Adult Development and Aging ) covers the specific ages-stages of adult development and aging. In its unparalleled coverage of current research and theory, the authors draw clear connections between research and application. The textbook's focus on "positive aging" and the gains and losses people experience across adulthood distinguish it from its competitors.

The textbook is written by two well-known and relevant people in aging and development. These two have done extensive aging and development research and that is key for this book to continue to be used and admired by professionals.
