With huge progress having been made over the last decade in terms of the disorder's recognition as a common cause of cognitive impairment, its clinical features, its underlying neurobiology, investigative changes, and management, this is undoubtedly a much-needed work in what is an important and rapidly progressing field.

This book describes biological and clinical aspects of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), one of the most common types of progressive dementia, although in most cases the cause is unknown. The editor has made a major contribution to the understanding of the disease since he first reported DLB in 1976. Written by renowned experts in the field, the book discusses not only diagnostic criteria and clinical symptoms of DLB but also various imaging modalities and biological markers such as alpha-synuclein, which are useful for diagnosis of DLB. Dementia with Lewy Bodies is aimed at psychiatrists, neurologists, and researchers who are interested in DLB.

“Judy is a wonderful physical therapist, who has energy, enthusiasm and the best ‘can do’ attitude. She has accurately given a description of the major task of ‘in-home care’ that most people cannot understand. I applaud her efforts; both the monumental task of care for Dean (who was a super guy) and writing this helpful book. Job well done!” —Joyce Dunlevy Cready, RN, BSN, Rehabilitation “I want to commend Mrs. Jennings on the work done to put together this book. It will be a valuable resource for patients and caregivers, and provides an honest and thoughtful look at her experiences with LBD. It was an honor to care for Dean and I know that her work with him and in this book will help others who are going through the same difficult life journey.” —Andrew P. Duker, MD, Neurology “This book is medically appropriate and concise. The information has breadth that is not available in other books.

Each section is focused on a major form of dementia and is organized following the same scheme reviewing the pathophysiology of the disease, its diagnostic challenges, its characteristic neuroimaging features, therapeutic interventions and patient management issues.
