Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a series of bibliographic essays on dementing illnesses, especially Alzheimer's disease.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and related disorders, and to review prevention and treatment research, long-term care issues, and sources of help for these diseases.
Audience: This book is written specifically for a lay audience.
Features: The chapters on associated dementing illnesses, especially AIDS-associated dementia, are thorough. The comprehensiveness of the information provided throughout this book is a strength.
Assessment: This book is written at too high a level for the lay public to understand much of it. There is a fair amount of redundancy and overlap. The references to sources of help, research, and information might be of most use to teams of healthcare professionals running memory disorders clinics.
