Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A ground-breaking book that is certain to become a classic in the field. It is well written and highly informative, and it brings the latest material on research and treatment of the disorder to therapists and administrators of homes for older people who are depressed as well as to confused families and caretakers...It is a model of how clear and exciting academic writing can be when written by knowledgeable professionals who are gifted writers. The book is highly recommended for all who are connected in any way with an elder person who is depressed and for students of all schools of psychology."
—Alma H. Bond (PsycCRITIQUES, August 15, 2007)

"…a fine book that should be required reading for anyone connected with adults who are depressed." (PsycCritiques, Monday 24th September 2007)
