Book reviews by JOHN BURTON E: jb@johnbbrixton.demon.co.uk

As we all know, the mere ownership of a book does not guarantee that it has been read. Nor does the mere reading of a book mean that the contents have been marked, learned and inwardly digested. On countless occasions, I have seen excellent books on display in care homes, and yet it is quite obvious that they have had little influence on thinking, ethos or practice.

I guarantee that this crop of books for review contains volumes that have the potential to change thinking and practice in your care home, but they do have to be read and used.
