′This book is a perfect accompaniment to those "problems of old age" modules that there is never enough time for. The lecture notes series are always good and this is no exception. Straight and to the point without all the waffle.′
Sphincter, Liverpool Medical Students′ Gazette

Published Reviews of the 6th Edition
"Another winner from the lecture notes series, covering all you need to know without the waffle."
5th Year Medical Student Liverpool Medical School, Sphincter, December 2003
"This book appeals straight away because it is thin and refreshingly to the point."
"The best feature of this book is that many social, psychiatricand ethical aspects of geriatric medicine are comprehensively covered without being boring."
"This is an ideal book either to dip in and out of or to read in a longer stretc, as it holds your attention. An added bonus is that the authors clearly have a good sense of humour."
Claire Vandevekde, Queen′s Medical Centre, Nottingham – Hospital Medicine July 2004
The result is a text that remains the most compact yet comprehensive guide to geriatric medicine. It will appeal to medical students, junior doctors on foundation programmes, general practitioners, nurses, and allied health professionals who want a concise introduction to the subject or an ideal revision companion.
