The cohesive text is an appealing blend of personal experience and clinical anecdotes, and is supported by a firm command of the rapidly changing clinical literature. The writing is crisp, lucid and, above all, practice-oriented … Budson and Solomon are especially adroit in identification of controversies, knowledge gaps, and areas in which diagnostic criteria are ill-defined or difficult to apply (eg, fluctuating cognition in dementia with Lewy bodies). Readers are not abandoned without guidance; ambiguities are resolved by confident descriptions of personal approaches to specific situations … The book is an incredible compilation of practical advice. (Lancet Neurology, March 2012)

"From the point of view of the busy clinician working in the trenches but looking for a practical and cutting-edge guide, Doraiswamy said he cannot think of a better book, noting, ‘This is the clinical book of the year in our field.’" (Alzheimer's Research Forum review, December 2011)

"Few books provide both a comprehensive review and a step-by-step guide. I strongly recommend this book to all those who treat patients with memory loss—physicians, social workers, psychologists, nurses—at every level of training and experience." - P. Murali Doraiswamy, M.D.(Professor & Head, Division of Biological Psychiatry, Duke University, and co-author of The Alzheimer’s Action Plan)

"Memory Loss: A Practical Guide for Clinicians provides the assessment, diagnostic and therapeutic insights clinicians need to provide exemplary care to memory impaired patients. Don’t go to the clinic without it." - Jeffrey L. Cummings, M.D. (Director, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, The Andrea L. and Joseph F. Hahn MD Chair of Neurotherapeutics)

"Designed for easy reference to satisfy the real time needs of clinicians in hectic clinical settings, I’m sure this volume will be dog-eared in short order given its clear no-nonsense style
