"If Boomers want a jump on what to expect as the lives of their parents wane; If Boomers want a blueprint for how to handle their parents' "stuff" and more; and if Boomers want anecdotal commentary that presents practical guidance for things they never thought of, then this little jewel is worth the time it takes to read and the modest cost to own."
