Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews of previous editions:

'This book is a perfect accompaniment to those "problems of old age" modules that there is never enough time for. The lecture notes series are always good and this is no exception. Straight and to the point without all the waffle.'

Sphincter, Liverpool Medical Students' Gazette

'The authors... have ensured that the book remains a concise yet remarkably comprehensive guide.'

Cal Review Services 1999

'...the best small book on an enormous subject.'

Modern Geriatrics

'Lecture Notes on Geriatrics remains the number one choice for undergraduates and newly qualified doctors alike.'

BMJ

Published Reviews of the 6th Edition

"Another winner from the lecture notes series, covering all you need to know without the waffle."

5th Year Medical Student Liverpool Medical School, Sphincter, December 2003

"This book appeals straight away because it is thin and refreshingly to the point."

"The best feature of this book is that many social, psychiatricand ethical aspects of geriatric medicine are comprehensively covered without being boring."

"This is an ideal book either to dip in and out of or to read in a longer stretc, as it holds your attention. An added bonus is that the authors clearly have a good sense of humour."

Claire Vandevekde, Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham - Hospital Medicine July 2004
