Excellent textbook

I've been using this book for several years as a recommended text in my gerontology classes. It is really excellent. It's quite readable and very helpful for the layperson or the health care provider.

A textbook with mass appeal

Originally designed as a text for those who want to work with those over 65 years, this softcover book is a comprehensive, well-referenced guide to issues and concerns of the growing elder population. Chapters cover demographics, theories of why and how we age, how age affects each body system and common illnesses. Also included are discussions of diet, exercise, sexuality, medications, health care, nursing home care and death and dying. Excellent, up-to-date reference. Written by a mother-daughter team (gerontologist and physician), the book provides a lot of information in a format that is easy to understand and presents a holistic approach to successful aging. A third edition is in the works.
