As the field of geriatrics and gerontology continues to grow and mature, more textbooks are being published. Another recent entry, the fourth edition of Principles of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology, edited by Hazzard and colleagues, is a well-written comprehensive text, which should be a useful resource for those involved in all aspects of geriatric care. Although the authors state that it is aimed at fellows in geriatric medicine, the style and format should have broad appeal.
