Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* According to the Federal Interagency Forum on Aging-Related Statistics, in 2010, more than 40 million people in the U.S. will be older than 65. This comprehensive encyclopedia will be invaluable for seniors and their caregivers but also for librarians seeking accurate, up-to-date, appropriate, and accessible information on a variety of topics specific to the aging population. Experienced medical writers, including medical doctors, pharmacists, and registered nurses, provide entries on diseases and conditions; tests and procedures; drugs, herbs, and vitamins; nutrition, exercise, and diet; recovery and rehabilitation; devices and tools; and other topics related to aging and senior issues. Arranged alphabetically, signed entries include references to related articles, lists of key terms where appropriate to define terms or concepts that may be unfamiliar to the user, resources directing readers to additional sources of information on a topic, and contact information for health organizations. Color photographs, illustrations, and tables enhance many of the entries. A glossary of key terms, an appendix of organizations, and a comprehensive general index provide additional value. Users seeking information about aging have many options. The Gale Encyclopedia is comparable in scope to resources such as The Encyclopedia of Aging (4th ed., 2006), published by Springer (considered the field’s most authoritative resource), and Encyclopedia of Health and Aging (2007), from Sage. In addition, there is no shortage of easy-to-use information online. In fact, the amount of health information on the Internet poses challenges in terms of efficient search and discovery. The Gale Encyclopedia of Senior Health, with its ambitious yet clearly defined scope of coverage, value-added features, and accurate and accessible entries written by experts, provides an excellent first stop for information seekers, and even libraries that own any other print resources on the topic will want to give it a careful look. It should quickly take its place as an indispensable reference both for health consumers and for students across the broad range of disciplines that now make up the field of aging. --Sarah Watstein
