Chapters on personality, somatoform, and pain disorders, on alcohol and substance abuse, and on sleep disturbances are of equally high quality. The reader will also find a refreshingly nonageist view throughout regarding the availability and usefulness of the full range of treatments for psychiatric disorders in older adults. For example, brief and long-term psychotherapies get appropriate coverage alongside pharmacological treatments for anxiety and depression. The book winds up with chapters on legal and ethical issues and mental health consultation in the general hospital, home, or nursing home. The single-author format is rare these days and works very well. Help from colleagues who have been generous with their time in reviewing individual chapters for the author has added to the book’s value, and there is nothing of the lopsidedness of content seen in rival volumes. The slightly awkward title really doesn’t do credit to the content and quality of the book. Geriatric Mental Health Care is a title that might give an unfortunate impression of covering practices that are not absolutely bang-up-to-date.
