'So well written the amount of information it contains is deceptive. Unlike many texts, the book is easy to read and provides an excellent overview of geriatrics' - "Journal of Family Practice". 'This handy-to-carry-and-use paperback is invaluable as a ready source of comprehensive up-to-date geriatric clinical information...richly supplemented by an enormous number of helpful tables, figures, and references' - "American Family Physician". 'All practicing physicians who care for older persons, medical students, residents, fellows, and the entire interdisciplinary team caring for older persons will derive benefit from this book' - Four Stars from Doody.'The superb writing, a clear focus on the clinical issues, presentation of complex issues clearly and succinctly...just a few of the reasons why "Essentials of Clinical Geriatrics" is a favorite resource among health professionals caring for older patients. The practical, problem-oriented approach guides you systematically through the clinical implications of aging, and reviews evaluation, diagnosis, and management of clinical problems encountered in daily practice.' - From the reviews of the previous edition.Much has been added to this edition to keep you on the cutting edge of clinical geriatrics, including: a brand new chapter on preventive care in clinical geriatrics; expanded coverage of preoperative evaluation, cancer management, and end-of-life issues; updated content on genetic aspects of geriatric care, pharmacology, hormone replacement therapy, and more. You'll appreciate the broad, readable coverage of pertinent issues and the highly accessible format of key diagnostic and therapeutic details. Superb tables conveniently summarize important information, and the handy appendix provides a compendium of checklists for essential procedures in geriatric assessment.

"There is not a wasted word in this book. Its style is enticing and elegant. Matching in elegance are the exquisite line drawings (so much better than photos) that illustrate its pages. The references are carefully selected and annotated, as are the suggested readings. The citation of Web-based materials -- both for patient education and for professionals -- is the best I have ever seen. The appendixes that give the assessment instruments themselves also add to the presentation....Each edition of this book adds something new. The pagination, size, and paper -- even the cover -- are improved. The printing of tables and boxes with a slightly darker background makes them easy to spot without being jarring. Kudos for the very careful editing of this book, which raises the level of medical writing here to that of the best British writers in days of yore. This is one of the best textbooks of geriatric medicine in terms of its clarity, completeness, and compactness. It give a complete, coherent, overarching view of geriatric medicine that still can be swallowed whole in an elective geriatric medicine rotation. Every medical library should possess this small marvel. 4 Stars!"-- Doody's Review Service ( Doody's 2003-11-21)From the Publisher:
