Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This soft-cover book is an introductory textbook of geriatric medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce medical students and other healthcare professionals in training to the particular problems of medicine in older persons, with a special emphasis on the main clinical presentation of major problems.
Audience: This book is aimed at medical students and other healthcare professionals, and is written at about the right level.
Features: Chapters are accompanied by useful evaluation algorithms and boxes summarizing the main points. There are no references, but a list of further reading is provided.
Assessment: This introductory textbook is written at a very basic level. It covers all the major topics in geriatrics except for a chapter on psychogeriatrics which, given its importance, deserves emphasis by itself. Written for a United Kingdom audience, United States trainees may find the systems for care of older persons a bit different here. Still, the fact that one can read the entire book cover to cover during a rotation gives this book a high recommendation.
