Reviews

"An important study of the 'baby boomer' generation, drawing upon an impressive body of scholarship. The study explores some fascinating links between the experiences of this cohort in the 1960s and the shaping of attitudes and identity in later life." Chris Phillipson, University of Manchester
"The Baby Boomers revolutionized being young. As time catches up with them they are destined to change what it means to grow older. Woodspring's study gives us a fascinating perspective on what that might look like." Jan Baars, University for Humanistic Studies, The Netherlands
"Baby Boomers' variegated dimensions assure its potential, as the cohort comes face to face with advanced ageing and dying, to transform interpersonal relations and societal structures. Naomi Woodspring, a Boomer herself, rethinks the meanings and contexts of time and embodiment in later years. Baby Boomers offered me fresh perspectives." W. Andrew Achenbaum, University of Houston
