KIRKUS REVIEW

A positive approach to the ""golden years"" does not overlook the possible loneliness, friendlessness, or failing health which may accompany them, but indicates some attitudes and activities which can offset these strictures: your own inner reserves, your point of view, your sense of your own worth and yourself. Television and labor saving devices rob us of our self-esteem and deprive us generally; golden age clubs are another evil- and only serve to segregate the aged. And along with the satisfactions to be found in social service work, nature, pets, reading, solitude, etc., there are more general considerations on the adjustment of -and to -the man around the house, the adjustment of the widow or widower. Easy to accept is the overall intent and outline for an active, productive, later life; hard to take- the homespun cliche and hoary sentiment.
