'This book could be a useful work of reference on wards and in day hospitals.' - Kalmen Kafetz, Age and Ageing 2006; 35: 454

"This book provides an interesting view of geriatrics. It gives a distinctly U.K. perspective on medical decision-making in functionally incompetent patients in the clinical vignettes."

"A number of tables detail useful differential diagnoses, red flags, and the approach to the sick older person. A chapter devoted to vignettes includes detailed and useful explanations of the points raised."

Dr David O'Staats (Doody's Reviews, Aug 2006)
