"...if you only have time to read one book this quarter consider this one" – Heather Dale, Journal of Child Psychotherapy , Vol. 37, Iss 1, April 2011
"Danielle Quinodoz's books is a comprehensive analysis of what is involved in the process of growing old and moving towards the end of life... psychoanalysis is lengthy and costly, making it unavailable to most elderly people. However Growing Old offers so much knowledge, insight and understanding, with a good reference section. I think it would be helpful and informative for all those in the helping professions who are in the helping professions who are in contact with older people, including psychiatrists, psychotherapists, counsellors, doctors, nurses, geriatricians, as well as affirming for those growing older themselves." - Joy Courtney, Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal, July 2010

Growing old is a wonderful book. It is unusual to find a book like this; it has depth, insight and a true understanding of the psychological issues and anxieties facing older people. Danielle Quinodoz focuses on the internal aspects of old age, including the importance of reconstructing one's own internal life history and retaining a self of self in spite of many losses. One chapter (Psychoanalysis and older people) is of particular interest to anyone involved in counselling or psychotherapy, and I would recommend it to the attention of professionals who work with older people in any helping capacity. I know the book will certainly inform my counselling teaching from now on.
