"This is an important text. It provides a practical application of highly abstract concepts of the strengths perspective. Clear, cogent examples represent a variety of practice settings and problem areas, making this book valuable for workers in mental health, community practice, and all settings in which older adults participate. McKnight has provided the motivation for this type of work; these authors give us the hammer and nails to make it happen!"
