Industry Reviews

This forensically detailed book gets to the DNA of reminiscence and life review, combining reports of research studies with accounts of the application of different approaches in practice. It will be particularly useful for scholars and practitioners interested in the theory of reminiscence, drawing as it does on studies concerning the rationale and benefits of making sense of our lives, linking past to present and reconciling previous experiences. - Ruth Eley, Dementia Action Liverpool

Read this book. The multiple perspectives are inviting, relevant, comprehensive, insightful, needed, scholarly and yet personal. - Professor Bruce A. Stevens, Charles Sturt University, Australia and author of the Storied Self
