The most RENOWNED AND TRUSTED INTRODUCTORY GUIDE to core topics in geriatric medicine and health care

A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This continues to be the leading U.S. introductory textbook in geriatric medicine. It is user friendly, well written and edited, and easy on the eyes. Not a single major concept is omitted. With some 400-plus pleasant pages, this can easily be read on a rotation in geriatric medicine. If I had a magic wand, I would wave it, and copies of this brilliant book would appear under the pillow of every hospitalist in the land. See if it doesn't resonate with you as well."--Doody's

  • An appendix of internet resources on geriatrics

    Review:

    "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 (Journal of Family Practice 2008-11-18)
