"Provides a unique perspective. I am particularly impressed with the sections on innovative design and methods to investigate cognitive aging and the integrative perspectives. None of the existing texts covers this material to the same level."
—Donna J. La Voie, Saint Louis University

"The emphasis on integrating the literature with theoretical and methodological innovations could have a far-reaching impact on the field."
—Deb McGinnis, Oakland University

Along with a comprehensive review of current research, editors Scott M. Hofer and Duane F.
