The American Geriatrics Society's complete guide to aging & healthUser Review - Book Verdict
Personal responsibility, a reverence for growing older, and practical information on medical concerns are advocated in this handbook. Williams, a leading gerontologist, examines various medical conditions within the broader context of how aging occurs, looks at the decison-making process (i.e., choosing a doctor, considering alternatives for long-term care, etc.), and discusses the policy arena. The excellent organization of chapter material with the appropriate use of charts complements the author's text. A resource listing provides contacts to meet clinical care needs. Complementing H. Winter Griffith's Complete Guide to Symptoms, Illness & Surgery for People Over 50 (LJ 6/15/92), this is truly an enjoyable, easy-to-read guide in tune with current medical philosophy and practice. A worthy purchase for health collections in public or special libraries.--Linda Malone, DePaul Medical Ctr., Norfolk, Va.
