Review quote

"The third edition of this book remains an outstanding contribution to the field. Clinicians and researchers as well as trainees will, without a doubt, benefit from reading and referring to this book."-- "Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A., Doody Enterprises", "July 23, 2011" "Our elderly patients, who suffer from neurological disorders such as traumatic brain injury, dementia, Parkinson disease, and cerebrovascular disease, must have physicians who know that the presentation, evaluation and treatment differ from the "usual" patient care. With the recognition that neuropsychiatry (with behavioral neurology) is a subspecialty with a specific knowledge base and perspective, the impressive group of experts assembled for the "Textbook of Geriatric Neuropsychiatry" provide the foundation for providing quality and cutting-edge care to our patients."-- "Jonathan M. Silver, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, NYU School of Medicine, Fellow, American Neuropsychiatric Association, Diplomate, Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry, New York, NY"show more
