Disappointing, 15 May 2011
I have to say I found this book disappointing. I (mistakenly perhaps) expected a look at the more personal, psychological aspects of ageing. What I got was a lot of facts and figures on biological and financial aspects of ageing which made for rather dull, depressing reading. If you are a person who reads the broadsheets and is informed, this book won't tell you anything you don't already know.
