?Researchers and practitioners will find this book to be extremely useful for reviewing recent literature on a wide variety of topics related to the older volunteer. The excellent organization, clear and descriptive annotations, useful indexes, and wide coverage of works from various academic and professional disciplines will aid persons who desire to know what research has been completed and where gaps in our knowledge exist. This book is an excellent source for all of us--students, researchers, practitioners, and policy makers--who wish to have an up-to-date compilation of annotated references on the older volunteer.?-Clinical Gerontologist
