Reviews:

"The Clinical Manual of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias edited by Drs. Weiner and Lipton offers the busy professional a concise orientation to the care of patients and families facing the challenge of dementia. This is a multi-authored text with an impressive array of expert contributors. The emphasis is pragmatic as one would expect of a clinical manual but recommendations both pharmacologic and behavioral are based on science."—Gary Kennedy, Professor and Director, Division of Geriatric Psychiatry, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
