Review of the 3rd edition

'Ian Stuart-Hamilton's text…has…become a “classic” text in its field...a very readable and academically accessible introductory textbook… Stuart-Hamilton's excitement for the potential developments in the area of psychogerontology is perhaps the greatest strength of this textbook. It is likely to engage student interest at undergraduate level and provide a basic platform from which further postgraduate study may progress. For either group, it is unlikely that students will come away from a reading of the text without at least some excitement for “what may be” in the future of gerontology.'
– Education and Ageing

Reviews of the 2nd edition

'Unquestionably the best, most authoritative introductory review of the cognitive psychology of ageing…should be on the essential reading list for clinical psychologists in training.'
– The Psychologist

'It is difficult to find a single area of omission – the range of this book seems to cover every possible perspective. As an introductory text, [it] is currently unrivalled, and I feel that it is destined to become a classic. I strongly recommend the book to anyone wishing to gain an understanding into the psychological processes of ageing.'
– Nursing Standard

'I loved it. This…is so beautifully written it gave me sleep deprivation. The style is engaging – a mixture of apparently well reviewed research, embellished with the author's personal viewpoints. The result is…pleasingly discursive and even witty. I found myself absorbing masses of information… I definitely recommend it as part of the Old Age Psychiatrist's bench library and my trainees will be encouraged to add it to their list for training.'
– International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry

This well-established and accessible text has now been completely revised in an expanded fourth edition. Each chapter has been updated to reflect current thinking. The chapters about personality and lifestyle have been significantly expanded. This new edition is essential reading for all those working with older people, as well as a key text for students.

This new edition replaces The Psychology of Ageing: An Introduction, 3rd Edition, ISBN 1 85302 771 5, published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers in 2000.
