Editorial Reviews

New England Journal of Medicine
...well organized and informative. It will be very useful to physicians who care for the elderly, both as background reading and as a reference for specific questions.
Circulation
The book is not intended to be perused and discarded, but rather to be studied so as to understand age:associated physiological changes that can affect the response to disease and then serve as a ready reference for further study...Indeed, the book should assist the physician to make 'the endings of elderly patients more joyous.
Lancet
...promotes the reader's awareness of the normal aging processes in the cardiovascular system and provides a rational basis for the management of pathological processes...This book should be available as a reference text in all hospital libraries and will be of considerable interest to everyone treating elderly people with cardiac problems.
Acta Cardiologica
The second edition is a revised and expanded version. The number of contributors increased by 50%. Several chapters...have been rewritten to include the latest information. In addition, new chapters have been added which include topics not previously covered...contains a lot of information on cardiovascular problems in elderly people.
David O. Staats
This book aims to discuss cardiology in older persons. The purpose is to discuss cardiac diseases in older persons including the context of old age, the changes in presentation of illness from younger age groups, and the treatment specific to the older age group. The stated audience is all physicians who care for older persons: family practitioners, internists, cardiologists, surgeons, residents, and students. The book should appeal most to geriatricians, cardiologists, fellows in these specialties, and residents in internal medicine. This book contains excellent tables and illustrations, especially of the morphologic features of the aging heart. The references are well chosen and pertinent. This attractive book summarizes clinical cardiology in older persons. Some chapters are a bit superficial but are more than made up for by several useful chapters that synthesize current information on a particular area such as anticoagulation and morphologic changes of the heart.
Booknews
In addition to new advances in therapy, this second addition emphasizes recent pathophysiological discoveries as the key to more effective preventive strategies and improved disease management. Coverage includes: a practical preoperative evaluation approach for the elderly patient who has been scheduled for noncardiac surgery; cardiovascular drugs, including new information concerning efficacy and adverse reactions of both the commonly used and newly developed drugs; thyroid heart disease; exercise training in the elderly; ethical decisions and quality of life; management of supraventricular tachyarrhythmias (emphasizing atrial fibrillation); and anticoagulation therapy.
