She is especially interested in intelligence in old age and factors that contribute to the maintenance of intellectual functioning in late adulthood. She is a Fellow in the Gerontological Society of America. She is the coauthor, with Sally Wendkos Olds and Ruth Duskin Feldman, of A Child's World, now in its eighth edition; of Psychology with Sally Wendkos Olds; and of Adult Development and Aging, with Cameron J.

She has spoken widely on the topics of her books and articles to both professional and lay audiences, in person and on television and radio. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where she majored in English literature and minored in psychology. She was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and was graduated summa cum laude.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend it to parents for everyday use Nov. 26 1999
By Deák Csaba - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Both me and my wife have been reading this book regularly to understand our children better. It is both interesting and practical. What I like best about it is that its recommndations as to how to raise children are mostly based on experience and research, not on anyone's opinions.
And one more thing: my two-year-old daughter LOVES the pictures inside!
