Osteoporosis: the silent epidemic

Osteoporosis: the silent epidemic
by Dr Marilyn Glenville; pub. Kyle Cathie Ltd.
This book is excellent for the non-specialist reader wanting to learn about osteoporosis and interested in self-help approaches. Dr Glenville approaches the subject as a nutritional expert and so is occasionally slightly off-target in some interpretations of the specialist literature, but this does not distract from the fundamental issues and nutritional/lifestyle interventions that can be adopted. A well written and very readable book.

Osteoporosis: Eds. Drs Marcus, Feldman & Kelsey; pub Academic Press.
This is a mighty tome for the specialist reader with contributions from field leaders. The considerable background supplies a very firm grounding, but these epic books all suffer from the same limitation – they cannot keep up with the constantly changing world of academic enquiry into osteoporosis. Every healthcare professional with an interest in osteoporosis should have this book centre-stage on their bookshelf.
