"This is an important and timely book on an extremely critical subject, and although its technical excellence and depth will challenge those without a formal background in molecular biology, the rewards I believe will be deeply commensurate with the effortâ¦ However, with that qualification in mind, the articles are uniformly of high quality and address critical issues in the science of aging-several, if not many, of these reviews are good enough to be considered benchmark reviews, cogently summarizing the state of the scienceâ¦ For those interested in a benchmark series of reviews on aging, this volume has much to offer. I recommend it highly. For geriatric neuropsychologists, sophistication about the biology of aging should be considered a required area of competence."--Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology
