About the book:

"The book in its first four editions is a classic in the field, representing a 'gold standard.'"--James H. Swan, PhD, Department of Applied Gerontology, University of North Texas

"This is a good review of the area of gerontology and is an excellent guide to better practice in nursing home administration."
