The seventh edition of Disorders of Voluntary Muscle has been rewritten and redesigned with the needs of the clinician and clinical scientist in mind. It contains up-to-date information on the etiology and pathogenesis of skeletal muscle diseases, including the mitochondrial myopathies, ion channel disorders, muscular dystrophies, and dysimmune myopathies. This volume covers the many recently identified diseases of muscle, and emphasizes the progress that has been made in diagnosis and treatment. As background to the clinical coverage, the new edition also has chapters summarizing advances in molecular and developmental biology, immunopathology, mitochondrial biology, ion-channel dynamics, cell membrane and signal transduction science, and imaging technology. Combining essential new knowledge with the fundamentals of history taking and clinical examination, this extensively illustrated book will continue to be the mainstay for practicing physicians and biomedical scientists concerned with muscle disease.

Review:

"Overall content and writing are excellent and the book is a pleasure to interrogate. It remains an essential library item." Brain

"Since the publication of the first edition in 1964, this text has proven to be a widely used, cross-disciplinary reference source for disorders of skeletal muscle...As a resource for the basic science of skeletal muscle and skeletal muscle diseases, this text would be an excellent addition to any reference library and would certainly assist in advanced studies of skeletal muscle disease." Physical Therapy

"...it represents a superb asset for a hospital or university library, where its readability and clarity of text throughout and its extensive coverage will make it a valuable contribution for those with an infrequent requirement for detailed knowledge. The volume is beautifully illustrated, and it is a credit not only to the authors and editors but also to the lifelong energy that Lord Walton himself has devoted to the subject of facilitating our understandinig of the voluntary muscle disorders." Rheumatology

"It is clearly written and very well structured. The new edition of Disorders of Voluntary Muscle can be recommended to students, clinicians, pathologists, and research workers in the biomedical field. Its characteristics make the textbook easy to consult." Clinical Rheumatology

"Disorders of the Voluntary Muscle is an excellent text...It will be a valuable tool for the practicing physician and an excellent reference for those in training who are learning about muscle disease." Laura Nist, Journal of Neurosurgery

"Beautifully illustrated and clearly written.... This edition is truly a concise, but comprehensive text for scientists, as well as clinicians." Pediatrics International

"The editors of the 7th edition of Disorders of Voluntary Muscle have captured the glory of the day. They and the invited contributors give a clear and up-to-date account of what has been discovered since 1994 and of what still remains as the essential core of clinical myology...none of the chapters falls short of expectations. The book is recommended for the clinical neurologist, medical students, and anyone who has a more than passing interest in muscle diseases." Neurology

"...this is an excellent book, it is easy to read, it is remarkably comprehensive and as current as any textbook is ever going to be. I would recommend it highly to any neurologist or any neurological trainee. I have my copy in a location where I keep books that I need to have available for easy reference. I know I will be referring to it frequently." Canadian Journal of Neurlogical Sciences

"...the clinical chapters are generally excellent with clear user-friendly descriptions of the clinical features, genetics, histology and prognosis of each condition." Journal of Neurology

"...a well-balanced combination of fundamental aspects of muscle physiology, investigations of muscle disease, and descriptions of individual conditions...I would strongly recommend this to anybody, ranging from medical students to neurology trainees to people...with a strong academic neuromusular interest...it is not easy to find an up-to-date, comprehensive, and 'digestible' review on this subject that is relevant to the clinical neurologist, but this book has achieved it." American Journal of Human Genetics
