'Hodges's book succeeds in giving the reader a faithful picture of the dementia puzzle.' -The Lancet Neurology 'This is a book that I expect to use regularly and profitably. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in dementia and to those of us who work in memory clinics and continue to be challenged by our early-onset dementia cases.' -British Journal of Psychiatry 'This book contains a wealth of useful information, much of it presented in easily accessible format. Such is the breadth of coverage that it may be recommended to anyone involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with dementia, not only those with early-onset.' -Advances in Clinical Neuroscience and RehabilitationAlthough uncommon in comparison to dementia in the elderly, early-onset dementia presents a huge problem for patients, their carers and physicians. This is the first comprehensive and international book on the subject, encompassing the clinical and neuropsychological features as well as the relevant advances in the neurosciences and patient management. After an introductory chapter on epidemiology, the book deals with assessment and evaluation, covers disorders mimicking dementia and describes the relevant advances in imaging, molecular pathology, neurochemistry and neuropathology. The focus then shifts to the main causes of dementia including Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, vascular dementia, Huntington's disease, prion encephalopathies and inflammatory disorders. The final section of the book deals with treatment issues including drug interventions and opportunities for non- pharmacological management. John Hodges is an acknowledged expert in this field and has assembled a team of leading academics and clinicians from around the world as contributors.

Hodges's book succeeds in giving the reader a faithful picture of the dementia puzzle. The Lancet Neurology This is a book that I expect to use regularly and profitably. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in dementia and to those of us who work in memory clinics and continue to be challenged by our early-onset dementia cases. British Journal of Psychiatry I would suggest that this is a valuable book for old age psychiatrists and neurologists. It is very well written and organised and is up-to-date and informative ... Every old age psychiatry and neurology department should have a copy. International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry This book contains a wealth of useful information, much of it presented in easily accessible format. Such is the breadth of coverage that it may be recommended to anyone involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with dementia, not only those with early-onset.
