In Clinical Manual of Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias, practicing psychiatrists and neurologists provide essential input into neuropsychiatric assessment and the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of neuropsychiatric conditions, including Alzheimer disease and traumatic brain injury. The manual provides invaluable information on both evaluation/diagnosis and treatment. Case studies offer real-life clinical experiences by some of the country's leading experts in the field.

"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"
