"Brain structure and cognitive function in normal aging as well as in Alzheimer's disease is the focus of an excellent multi-authored volume, Handbook of the Aging Brain. An enormous amount of data is summarized leading to the overall conclusion that Alzheimer's disease is not simply a more serious or rapid extension of the normal aging process...[Handbook of the Aging Brain] is strongly recommended for those with considerable knowledge of neurobiology, Alzheimer's disease, aging, and brain disorders."
"In conclusion, the book is a collection of reviews that offers the most recent advances in the field, and the cahpters are well-written, well-organized, and well-referenced. The book is a very good source for both clinicians and research workers."
