The first edition of Fundamentals of Geriatric Medicine: A Case-Based Approach, by Rainier P. Soriano and his associate editors Helen M. Fernandez, Christine K. Cassel, and Rosanne M. Leipzig, is a well-written book that covers a broad range of problems encountered in caring for elderly individuals. The purpose of the book is to enhance knowledge and skills of medical students, residents, fellows, and primary care physicians in caring for older patients. Twenty individuals affiliated with multiple universities in the United States have authored the chapters. According to the authors, this book is intended as a practical educational companion to the well-recognized Geriatric Medicine: An Evidence-Based Approach, fourth edition, edited by Christine K. Cassel et al (2003).
