From the reviews:
"This book is unique in its focus on rheumatologic diseases in the geriatric population -no other book in adult rheumatology focuses on a particular population. ... covers a range of topics including myopathies, vasculitides, arthralgias, arthritis, and bone health. It does a good job focusing on geriatric issues related to decreased renal function, fall risk, etc. ... The book is easy to read and meets its stated objectives. ... it may be a good reference for geriatricians." (Hyon Ju Park, Doody's Review Service, February, 2012)
"Present information regarding most of the common rheumatic diseases and their effects and outcomes in elderly persons ... . I would recommend Geriatric Rheumatology to academic and clinical rheumatologists, geriatricians, and rheumatology and geriatrics fellows. This book is an appreciated and useful source of current information, providing insights necessary to better treat the increasing population of geriatric patients with rheumatic disease. It points to the need for more basic and clinical research aimed at therapeutic trials and outcomes research in the elderly population." (Robert J. Quinet, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 307 (7), February, 2012)
