MEDIA REVIEWS
"A practical guide to "coal-face" old age psychiatry. The book is packed with the kind of information it takes many years of practice to accumulate, and presents the information in a very easily digestible form. If the giants of old age psychiatry had told stories to trainees, this is what they would have told. It is clearly and concisely written." (International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, February 2009) "The book is written in an easy assimilated format, ideal for use in the clinic and on the ward." (Doody's, June 2008)
