Rob, a medical writer who has done geriatric nursing, and geriatric nurse practitioner Reynolds have written a valuable handbook designed to answer questions about aging and health. Clearly written, their guide covers changes in vision and hearing, skin, digestion, heart and lungs, bones, kidney and bladder, as well as depression, memory loss and nervous system disorders, cancer, and diabetes. Chapters on medication safety, convalescent home care, and getting help from social service agencies complete the work. Recommended for popular medical collections because of its comprehensive coverage, practical tips, and sound advice.- Anne C. Tomlin, Auburn Memorial Hosp. Lib.,
