This book is really a concise text book explains aging and diseases of elderly persons. Elderly persons have an increased prevalence of chronic diseases, disabilities mental illness and other co morbidities. Treating an adult patient is entirely different from treating older patients. Medical students and young doctors should learn to differentiate the approach between adult and elderly patient. This book is primarily for medical students, Residents and young doctors and help as a hand guide for approaching common problems encountered with elderly patients. I am sure this book is not fully comprehensive or authoritative but it will provide readers basics of diagnosis and management geriatric patients. Readers who want thorough knowledge of management of geriatric patients can refer larger geriatric books and illustrations. Dr. D. L. Ramachandra
