I found each concept to be succinctly and simply captured, holding enough information to satisfy initial cravings and complex enough to tempt further reading I had originally thought that this book would provide supplementary reading as part of my 'Healthy Ageing' course, but have changed my mind to essential reading now I have had the opportunity to read the entire book.

The tension between these two meta-theoretical camps forms the scholarly backdrop for the give and take to follow. The concept of the life course may have reached a level of maturity that puts it on par with venerable concepts in the social sciences, such as social class, where contentiousness over their conceptualization and operationalization has almost become proof of their utility.

I hope that the ensuing articles provide food for thought about the evolving nature of the life course within this context.
