"The text is also well supported with a variety of student and academic resources, which can be accessed through the publisher's website. Thus a particular strength of the book is that it can be used as the core component of a wide ranging and interactive learning experience. I consider this text valuable learning material for all nurses who work with older adults and I would particularly recommend it for undergraduate nursing students and postgraduate students specialising in the field."

This textbook is both clear and concise. The subject matter is well-organized and easy to navigate. I find it one of my more "readable" nursing texts, with good information that's not dry or too dense. The side bars are helpful and provide useful insights. The authors include both "Implications" and "Interventions" in each section, giving practical, real-world, evidence-based care solutions for various challenges, taking this text from merely rote academics to applicable tools. I have applied a few of the solutions (i.e.: establishing therapeutic connections with elders by encouraging open reminiscing) and found them to be very affective and helpful.
With a population whose average age is rapidly increasing, you may find this textbook to be very helpful as I have. I would highly recommend it for nurses, nursing students, and moreover their professors to use as a textbook for gerontological nursing instruction.
