    schema:reviewBody ""You and Your Aging Parent was the first book to shed light on the emotional, social, health, and financial difficulties that elderly parents and their adult children face during the senior years. It quickly became the classic text on the subject. Now, in this newly revised edition, the book addresses the changes that have occurred over the past thirty years in our understanding of the aging process, while still embracing the authors' enduring insight: that the ways in which parents and adult children meet the challenges of aging are as much a unique family affair as any other experience they've had together in earlier phases of life. The book also now includes commentary by author and humorist Bob Morris, who provides insightful and entertaining observations about his own parents as they aged, serving as a contemporary voice for the middle-aged son or daughter today."--BOOK JACKET." ;
