"Written and edited by internationally recognized clinician-researchers, this is essential reading for any professional involved in the care of patients with dementia. ... This is a superb book written by top-notch clinician-researchers in dementia. It is currently the best resource for understanding dementia syndromes." --Doody's Health Sciences Book Review "Overall, this is an exceptionally well-written book that should be in the library of every clinician who works with persons who have dementia. It has achieved the editors' stated goals. It is comprehensive, providing a review of current and evidence-based information that does improve the knowledge of the reader. At the same time, it is clearly written by clinicians and truly does enhance the competence of the clinician to assess, feel confident in the diagnosis, and adequately manage dementia through a multidisciplinary approach. Our patients with dementia and their caregivers deserve the best that health care has to offer, and this book enables clinicians to deliver that care." --The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
