The disproportionate increase in population in the higher age groups in this country in the past twenty years, which in all likelihood will increase still further, has stimulated much interest in the subject of gerontology and geriatrics by physiologists, pathologists and clinicians.

This work is balanced poorly, mainly because certain features are emphasized unduly, while others are neglected or merely mentioned; furthermore, there is too much repetition. There is a moderately comprehensive bibliography at the end of each chapter.

The reviewer feels that this work falls too far short of its possibilities to encourage students or clinicians to invest in it.
