A majority of this text includes chapters that specifically identify the various treatment modalities for agitation in dementia. These include chapters on the use of antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mood stabilizers. One chapter is devoted to the topic of lesser-used pharmacotherapies. However, the book includes very little information on the use of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, which, although marketed for cognitive improvement, have demonstrated benefit in behavioral symptoms. There are a few interesting chapters on alternative therapies, including one on the use of bright-light therapy and another on hormonal treatments. The final chapter briefly reviews legal and ethical issues. All the chapters are organized and well written in an easy to read format.
