Students taking elder law, working in elder clinics, or simply dealing with aging relatives, should be assigned this book. Quick and easy it offers a legal checkup and describes how it is to grow older. It covers the legal issues, but also the critical not-on-the-syllabus issues: talking to one's family, recognizing elder abuse, dealing with disability and death. Kenney Hegland is known for clear writing and questionable jokes; Robert Fleming, in the trenches for 35 years, is known, along with Professor Rebecca Morgan, as the rock star of NAELA (National Association of Elder Law Attorneys).
