Successful Cognitive and Emotional Aging provides an engaging account of the current state of research on cognitive and emotional aging, with a particular emphasis on strategies to offset potentially negative consequences of the aging process. By focusing on maintaining normal function with age as opposed to the more traditional focus on age-related declines and pathology, the text attempts to assume a place among the existing literature by providing a useful guide for older adults, practitioners working with older populations, and others interested in evidence-based strategies to promote health in the midst of age-related losses.
