This book has a lot of stories; some of them seem to make a good point, some of them make you wonder what the point of the story was and where is the author trying to go.
The book was written in the late 90s, and I felt that that limits it's usefulness. I'm younger than the intended audience was back when it was first written, and the intended audience are now old enough to count as "old". That said, some of it is still useful as some of the seniors who were the original subjects of the book are sometimes still alive.
A friend recommended this book to me when my 80+ year-old father's health was in decline and I was torn between living my own life and wanting to drop everything and care for him.
Mary Pipher, a distinguished counseling psychologist, treats the subject of aging parents so tenderly and insightfully that I drew tremendous comfort from reading the book. She helped me understand the minddset of a different generation and cope more constructively with challenges my father and brothers and I faced in meeting his needs. Highly recommended.
