Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1998, Vol 43(4), 283-284. The reviewer states that this book (see record 1996-97060-000) brings together chapters by authors from a range of areas in psychology to explore the use of narrative methods (labeled “biography” in the title) in the study of aging. The volume is constructed on the premise that aging is a subject particularly well suited to these methods. In conclusion, the book offers entre to diverse-and sometimes incompatible-literatures and approaches. It is an excellent place to begin thinking about the use of narrative methods in studying aging; but it probably is not a good place to stop.
