The rapid growth in neuroscience and in knowledge about dementia disorders creates a need, for both specialists and nonspecialists involved in the care of cognitively impaired patients, for a single reference that provides a comprehensive summary of diagnosis and treatment-related information. This volume on the dementias nicely fills this niche. Now in its third edition and with a new coauthor (Dr Lipton), this volume provides a comprehensive summary of critical issues important to those caring for patients with dementia syndromes.
