Andrew Kertesz, Trafford Publishing, Oxford, UK, 2006. Reviewed by Rachel Waford Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences University of Louisville The purpose of the present book is to highlight symptoms and manifestations of Pick’s Disease as well as to clarify the use of synonymous terms such as Pick’s Disease, Pick’s Complex, and Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD). The author attempts to differentiate commonly misdiagnoses of bi-polar disorder (BPD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. This book is useful in providing first hand accounts of rare occurrences of neuropsychological illness, specifically Pick’s Complex, a disease that is under diagnosed but may not be as rare as once thought. To address these aims, the author presents 19 case studies of individuals with Pick’s Complex. These chapters are preceded by an introduction that outlines the history of the disease, the various diagnostic labels used, and the overall organization of the volume. The book comes to a close with chapters regarding identification of the disease, diagnosis and genetic counseling, tips for caregivers, and the current treatments and research available. Finally, the author provides a glossary of commonly used terms. Throughout the chapters, the author illustrates common features of the disease and frequently revisits these manifestations, discussing possible misdiagnoses, why these occur, and why in fact, Pick’s Complex is a more appropriate diagnosis. The detail with which these case studies were written illustrates the author’s commitment to the topic and his patients. Overall, the text provided quite an enjoyable read. However, there were some organizational issues. I found that I did not really grasp the common features of Pick’s Complex and the synonymous use of FTD until chapter 16. Although the chapters were about different people and their experi- BOOK REVIEW 657 Downloaded by [University of North Dakota] at 11:53 21 December 2014 ences, there was no clear overall organization and no transition between chapters. Instead, the chapters seemed to jump from topic to topic (e.g., aphasia, to movement disorders) and back again. This book is most appropriate for students, psychologists psychiatrists, and researchers who are interested in the neuropsychology of frontal lobe atrophy.
