Editorial Reviews


Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Volume 6, Issue 65, Frank W. Brown, M.D., M.B.A. -- "A delightful and compact book of concise information about dementia subtypes, assessment, and treatment, as well as the psychiatric conditions often associated with dementia. With this vast amount of knowledge of various types of progressive and non-progressive cognitive impairment, it is important to have resources available that can aid in our quick acquisition of knowledge to assist us in patient care. This book provides a means of easily extracting information from its 4 sections and detailed appendices. The appendices provide a wonderful set of pocket-sized, 1-page summaries of a wide range of issues in dementia. The most important attribute of this book is that it provides information that a busy clinician can use in active clinical care of the patient. The book is well organized, with a content outline and a subject index that can lead the reader to the area of interest quickly. Overall, this book represents an excellent continuation of the Practical Guides in Psychiatry series. For someone who needs quick, useful information on the assessment and treatment of dementia, this resource is highly recommended." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Dr Agronin provides a great deal of useful information. He is currently involved in clinical research and is running the Memory Center at the Jewish Hospital and Home for the Aged in Miami. The book would be a good tool for all medical professionals
