Depression affects between 10-15% of older people, making it the most frequently encountered mental health condition in later life. Despite this, the condition is easily missed in clinical practice or not adequately treated. Part of the Oxford Psychiatry Library, this second edition of Depression in Later Life highlights areas of depression which are of special relevance to later life, how to diagnose depression in an older person, the overlap with dementia and various other physical illnesses, and important pharmacological and psychological considerations. All chapters have been updated with new data where relevant, and case vignettes are included to ensure the book is relatable and easy to read.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a valuable little book on an important disorder for clinicians to recognize and treat. It is an excellent review of the topic and is a welcome addition to the psychiatric literature. * Doody's *
I would recommend this book to any clinician who might be encountering older adults in their practice, from the general practitioner, to the specialist, and especially those who are time-poor, as all this knowledge is impressively compressed within 150 pages! * Samantha Loi, Journal of International Psychogeriatrics *
