Review:

From the reviews:

“This is a comprehensive overview of degenerative conditions in behavioral neurology, movement disorders, and neuromuscular neurology. ... It is intended as a clinical guide for a wide variety of neurodegenerative disorders, which is important given the complexity of these conditions. Neurology staff physicians or residents who see older patients who are most susceptible to neurodegenerative diseases are the intended audience. ... This is an excellent book for any practicing neurology clinician. It is concise yet thorough and serves as an excellent reference.” (Greg Thaera, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2012)

“This book is an absolute must for clinicians who deal with patients presenting symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease; Dementia and Cerebrovascular Disease; Parkinson’s Disease; Fronto-Temporal Dementia; Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis; and Huntington’s Disease. With outstanding analysis of both treatment/management approaches as well as implementation of palliative-care strategies.” (The Electric Review, October, 2012)
