'I think there will be a lot of interest in this book. Its key selling point is the author's interdisciplinary approach and the clarity with which she pulls it together' -
Sally Robinson, Canterbury Christ Church University

'Mary Larkin's book is written in an accessible style which is suitable for first year undergraduate students but also allows more advanced students to appreciate the topic. The chapter overviews, activities and discussion points enable the reader to embed the information from each of the chapters. I will be recommending this book to my students' -
Jayne Evans, Staffordshire University
'This is a useful background book for all students interested in health, wellbeing and ageing. Well-referenced, it looks at factors such as employment, smoking, recreational drug use and relationships that affect the course of our lives. As a student, this book has informed a number of my essays.
Each chapter offers an overview, introduction, discussion of health and wellbeing at that particular stage of life, and specific risks to health and wellbeing. The discussion points are an opportunity for reflection and further study. I found the seven-page glossary particularly useful.' -- Nicola Evans * Nursing Standard *
This book harnesses evidence from a growing body of research, particularly on prenatal health and associations with health in later life. It contains information that nurses can use to reflect on their practice and assist them when communicating health promotion messages to clients using an holistic approach. -- Sara Nam * Primary Health Care *
