Here is a new book for discussion here:

Human Aging (2nd Edition) (MyDevelopmentKit Series)
by Paul W. Foos and M. Cherie Clark (Hardcover - Jan 1, 2008)

From the Back Cover:

Human Aging, Second Edition, offers a readable and friendly presentation of the important methods, findings, and theories of human aging, while actively involving the reader in meaningful exercises and critical thinking.

Students are repeatedly challenged to apply information in the text to the older adults in their own lives, with suggestions for enhancing the lives of their older relatives. These include guidelines for discussions regarding social, emotional, and environmental changes as well encouraging intellectual and social interaction.

New to this Edition:

The Companion Website now features “Audio Senior Views”, audio interviews with a diverse group of adults that reinforce the main topics in each chapter, while infusing the material with the human element that is often lacking in textbooks.

New and updated chapter on Research Methods and Issues stresses issues of critical thinking in the classroom.

Social Policy boxes bring students into a discussion of current issues that affect a growing older population, as well as their future experience of human aging.

Publisher: Allyn & Bacon; 2 edition (January 1, 2008)

Key words:
New books, Human Aging, Paul Foos, M. Cherie Clark, Allyn and Bacon, ageing, gerontology
