"This updated, thoroughly comprehensive edition remains exceptional. I highly recommend it to any psychiatrist interested in geriatric psychiatry. The publisher offers online access to the textbook but, unfortunately, even after purchasing this expensive book, an additional fee is required for this privilege."-- "Doody Enterprises", "June 12, 2009"
