- Hylton Menz, PhD, BPod(Hons), Associate Professor and Reader Director, Musculoskeletal Research Centre, La Trobe University, Australia
"This book is packed full of a wide variety of references from peer-reviewed papers in each chapter. The author Hylton Menz, has obviously taken a clear evidence-based approach to every aspect of the book, which makes it an invaluable tool for podiatrists & podiatry students. I am sure that clinicians such as physiotherapists (& students) will find this book useful. I myself am a podiatry student & am certain I will use this book for the rest of my course, once qualified & beyond. chapters 1 & 2 give a great explanation of the prevalence of foot problems & physiological changes of ageing, which is useful in all aspects of podiatry i.e.; biomechanics- physiological changes in muscle mass etc. The diagrams & tables are a fantastic compilation of relevant information which provide a useful summary of the text; physiological changes of skin, muscle, bone etc & their effects & wound classification to name a couple. Nail, skin & vascular conditions are covered well with some fantastic colour pictures. I am really enjoying reading this book, having learnt a lot from it already. I recommend this as an essential read for podiatrists, students & any healthcare professionals involved in working with the older patient."

"Although itâs targeted at those healthcare professionals involved in foot care, itâs well written and easy to navigate and would be useful for both medical undergraduates and postgraduates as an additional text to standard dermatology texts. Iâve not come across such a comprehensive (and yet useable) text on foot conditions...Probably the best book Iâve reviewed over the last few years of judging."
