- Reviews the book, Geriatric Neuropsychology: Assessment and Intervention by Deborah K. Attix and Kathleen Welsh-Bohmer (Eds.) (see record 2005-16543-000). The editors are to be commended for providing a coherent, organized structure to the book that makes it comprehensive, yet very readable. The book has two parts, with Part I focusing on assessment and Part II on intervention. Many of the chapters, particularly in the first section, follow a predictable sequence, which will make this book valuable as a 'quick and easy' reference source for both clinicians and researchers. The book is comprehensive and well organized, which makes it an ideal selection as a resource to place on one's bookshelf. It is up-to-date and differs from similar books by providing a uniquely neuropsychological point-of-view about neurodegenerative disorders and related syndromes rather than simply rehashing methods for conducting a differential diagnosis. Whether a veteran or a recent entrant into the field, neuropsychologists from all backgrounds and specialties will benefit from this book's well-presented introduction to contemporary practice in geriatric neuropsychology.
