"The psychological and medical consequences of caregiving, long ignored in the literature, have only recently been recognized and examined as a distinct problem. Dr. Sandra Haymon's important new book, Baby Boomers—Sandwiched Between Retirement & Caregiving, brings the emotional, physical, spiritual, and even the bureaucratic pitfalls into clear focus. Comprehensive in scope, thoroughly researched, and exquisitely detailed, Baby Boomers anticipates the unforeseen landmines awaiting caregivers and offers concrete strategies to prevent, avoid, and overcome them. The inevitable unexpressed anger and associated shame felt by many caregivers receives a compassionate and understanding discussion. Baby Boomers is the most useful and readable exposition of the caregiver problem I have ever encountered. This superb volume belongs in the library of every clinician and counselor."
