It's a keeper!

As a gerontologist, I have read many books on drugs and drug interaction for elderly patients. All of them were thoughtfully written and had salient points. However, if you asked me to provide you with a list of books I've read on this subject, I couldn't help you. I didn't keep them. In fact, I gave them away. Nothing I have read seemed relevant to my work with elderly patients. However, I'll keep Salzman's book. Two critical points can be made about this important volume.First, it is well written. Salzman has a rare ability to captivate his readers. Please realize that PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATIONS FOR OLDER ADULTS is an academic book. It is not suppose to be interesting, but it is. I think the case illustrations are particularly good.Second, it is relevant to gerontologists who are NOT physicians. After reading this book, I can more clearly understand issues that physicians must address and comprehend how medication mistakes can be made.Everyone who is concerned about drugs and elderly should read this book and retain it as a reference. It's a keeper.
