Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 418–419. Reviews the book, Aging and Behavior: A Comprehensive Integration of Research Findings. 2nd ed by Jack Botwinick (1978). This book was designed as a reference source and for use in undergraduate psychology courses. Major emphasis was placed on topics of central concern to laboratory psychologists. The second edition has been written in a more lively and thought-provoking manner and the author's objective of updating and expanding material has been met without sacrificing the original scholarly character of the book. The chapter on sexuality is interesting and informative, although a masculine point of view pervades interpretations of the data on sexual behavior of aging men and women. This interestingly written, well-documented, and comprehensive text seems particularly well suited for the undergraduate curriculum. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
