Review quote

REVIEWS OF THE LAST EDITION: "The principal merit of this book is the clear and coherent approach of the six authors, who are the world's leading figures in the field, to describing and interpreting the many complex and variable aspects of multiple sclerosis."-NEJM" Since its inception, McAlpine's Multiple Sclerosis has achieved the rare distinction of becoming one of the classical neurological texts of the last century. The possession of this book was a priority for anyone practising neurology and a necessary acquisition for any self-respecting medical library."-Brain"The authors must be warmly congratulated on producing an outstanding reference text that Nigel Compston and his original coauthors would be immensely proud of, their intention at the outset being that of simulating interest 'in the ever widening field of demyelinating disease'. This book clearly fulfils that legacy and definitively presents the current state of knowledge."- J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry
