Reviews

Review by: April Caudill on Sep. 29, 2013 :
Highly educational and intriguing story! I recommend this for anyone who is an elder, loves one, or hopes to become one. I recommended it to my parents, who just bought it, and I suggested my work colleagues get it and read it too, because we work a lot with people who are advising elders. Good job Frank and William!
