Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Both geriatric psychiatrists at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, Miller and Reynolds here share their 20-plus years' experience of working with older people suffering from depression. As the authors remind readers, the incidence of depression significantly rises with age, and suicide, highly associated with depression, is five times more common in later life. This important, thorough work covers the various forms of and medical reasons for depression and how it's related to Alzheimer's and other diseases; reviews how to evaluate and treat depression, including medication and psychotherapy; and presents numerous strategies for staying free of depression for the long term. The helpful appendix contains hotline numbers of organizations that focus on depression and URLs related to depression and late-life issues. Though several works for health professionals contain similar information, this is the first book to address lay readers. Strongly recommended.

Review

It is good to see a book that so comprehensively informs sufferers and carers. It will be useful for those patients and carers who expect more information and want to take part in decisions.

(Susan Bedford International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry)

Mark Miller and Charles F. Reynolds III are two of the leading geriatric depression researchers... This book provides a valuable resource for older patients and their families. It is a useful and welcome addition to the growing library of lay-oriented books on depression and other mental illnesses.

(Paul E. Ruskin, M.D. Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease 2003-01-00)

This book will set the standard for some time to come... A first-rate resource for families and loved ones of depressed elders. Clear writing, concise tables, and solid science make this book the single-best text to offer the older depressed patient and family.

(Joshi John, MD and Gary J. Kennedy, MD Journal of the American Geriatrics Society 2003-01-00)

The authors have succeeded in presenting the present stage of knowledge about late-life depression in a useful, user-friendly format.

(Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease)

Take it from one who's been there. This is a thorough, carefully done, responsible, and remarkably useful book. Easy to read and understand. I admire immensely what Drs. Miller and Reynolds have given us.

(Mike Wallace, Senior Correspondent 60 Minutes)

This important, thorough work covers the various forms of and medical reasons for depression [in older people] and how it's related to Alzheimer's and other diseases; reviews how to evaluate and treat depression, including medication and psychotherapy; and presents numerous strategies for staying free of depression for the long term.... Though several works for health professionals contain similar information, this is the first book to address lay readers. Strongly recommended.

(Library Journal (starred review))

The authors succeed quite well in describing the symptoms and treatment of depressive syndromes in the geriatric population. It is well organized and comprehensive in the topics it covers, and easy reading without being simplistic.

(Francis M. Mondimore, M.D., Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, author of Bipolar Disorder: A Guide for Patients and Families)

A comprehensive, original work from a group recognized as leading researchers on this topic.

(Peter V. Rabins, M.D., Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, coauthor of The 36-Hour Day: A Family Guide to Caring for Persons with Alzheimer Disease, Related Dementing Illnesses, and Memory Loss in Later Life)

In this book, two of the pioneers in the diagnosis and treatment of depression in older people present the most recent information on the state of our knowledge in this important consideration. Drs. Miller and Reynolds are geriatric psychiatrists who have devoted their careers to the issue of depression in older people. Through their important work, they have advanced our understanding and have taught us much of what we know in this area. They summarize their experience over the past two decades and provide useful information for anyone dealing with depression in his or her own life.

(from the foreword by Barry D. Lebowitz, Ph.D., National Institute of Mental Health)

An excellent brief readable book on depression.

(Ruth Harriet Jacobs, Ph.D. The Senior Times)

Thorough, carefully written, responsible, and useful. It is easy to read and to understand, without being simplistic.

(Matt Robillard Canadian Journal of Psychiatry)
