"The book definitely offers the reader in-depth and extensive coverage of the more common nutrition issues that older individuals will face either at home or in environments that provide direct care for elderly residents… It would make a great reference for nearly all health care professionals, from dietitians to general practice physicians looking for an encompassing nutrition reference addressing issues that affect older adults."
