Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a multiauthored, comprehensive textbook of geriatric medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide comprehensive information about the diseases and care of older persons in a wide variety of settings.
Audience: Medical students, residents, fellows, geriatricians, and primary care physicians, especially family practitioners, will find this textbook of use.
Features: This textbook is well organized and paginated. It has perhaps fewer illustrations and diagrams than comparable textbooks. There are chapters on HIV in older persons and practice guidelines not found in other textbooks of geriatric medicine.
Assessment: This fifth edition of one of the standard textbooks of geriatric medicine has undergone extensive revision and expansion. The excellent organization of this textbook is a real strength, as approaches to the care of older persons specific to many different settings are highlighted. I have always liked this textbook, and still do.
