The Columbia School of Public Health was among the first to develop a division devoted to gerontology and geriatrics. Such a tradition, which emphasizes the preventive aspects of medicine, is evident in this compendium. Topics include nutrition, relationships, planning for retirement, utilizing the health care system, and preventing common chronic diseases. The book speaks to the elderly themselves rather than to younger relatives and offers less of a disease-oriented model than do similar works. Subjects covered here have been discussed thoroughly elsewhere, but the numerous charts and excellent documentation make it a good choice for most libraries.
