From our regular book review column.

Readers should be immediately advised: the Clinical Manual of Geriatric Psychopharmacology is not just another book on geriatric psychopharmacology. It is, in reality, a superb clinical textbook of psychopharmacology for treatment of adults of all ages, with special emphasis on elderly patients.

The first 2 chapters, “The Practice of Geriatric Psychopharmacology” and “Basic Psychopharmacology and Aging,” as well as the chapter on “Dementia and Other Cognitive Disorders,” are, to be sure, specifically directed toward care of the elderly patient.
