    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this is an excellent book and can be recommended particularly for psychiatry, neurology, and pathology residents, as well as practicing clinicians who frequently see dementia patients in their practices." Clinical Gerontologist

    "The writing remains excellent, and the illustrations are now in color." Annals of Neurology, Barbara S. Crain, MD,PhD, Baltimore Maryland

    "This authoritative and comprehensive book is one of those `must have' books and it will be invaluable for practising neuropathologists, as well as gerontologists, neurobiologists and psychiatrists working in the field of dementia. I must admit that I am delighted to have a copy of this book and have used it with more enthusiasm than I have ever thought possible." The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, Dr. Malee Fernando, Specialist Registrar in Neuropathology, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield

    "...a must for neuropathologists with an interest in dementia." ACNR, IAJ Larner, M Doran, Cognitive Function Clinic, WCNN, Liverpool

    "There are many books on dementia, so an understandable response to news about yet another one is 'What's so special about this one?' The answer in this case is 'It has great perspective and is a joy to read.'" American Neurological Association, Barbara J. Crain

    "This is a well-written reference textbook and is most appropriate for physicians and trainees in pathology, clinical neuroscience, and psychiatry with an interest in dementia. Neuroscientists engaged in neurodegenerative research will find it particularly useful as a one-stop resource of current literature."
    Ravi Raghavan, Journal of Neurosurgery
