Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a comprehensive multiauthored textbook of geriatric medicine and gerontology. This revised fifth edition supercedes the fourth edition, published in 1998.
Purpose: "This book reviews geriatrics and gerontology so that physicians can better understand and undertake the care of older persons, no matter how frail and no matter in what setting. It succeeds splendidly in doing so. "
Audience: All practitioners caring for older persons will find this book of use and also easy to use. Students and trainees at all levels, gerontologists and the entire healthcare team caring for older persons will benefit from this book.
Features: The thought and care used in revising this new edition is at once evident. The flow of this book, its pagination and grouping are superb. The editing has been done with care and so has the writing and annotation. For example, the chapter on advanced directives is not only a brilliant summary of the state-of-the-art, but also operationalizes how ability to consent is assessed and obtained. This scope and style permeates the entire book. Never an arid bibliographic recitation, these pages breathe life into the subjects at hand.
Assessment: Not everything is in this book (driving, elderly retardates, etc.), but the field of geriatrics has become so broad that including something on everything about geriatrics would seriously enlarge this book. This is clearly the leading textbook of geriatric medicine in the world. It invites the reader into an exciting, expanding network of understanding and care. It gives the what, how, and why of geriatric medicine and gerontology in shining clarity. A must for every medical library, without question.
