Review quote

"Dr. Foldvary-Schaefer appears to be very well qualified in our field to put together such a project (and quite a prolific author)...the table of contents is thoroughly inclusive and comprehensive....I think the timing is also favorable for such a book...Iwould recommend that you go forward with the proposal." Stephen N. Brooks, M.D., Stanford Sleep Disorders Clinic, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 " Is the timing right for this sort of publication? Sleep is hot right now in the public and medical community. There are not a lot of case based texts at present. Is the Table of Contents sufficiently comprehensive or are key topics of discussion missing? (Please keep in mind that only 52 cases will be presented.) The topics as outlined are appropriate broad based and cover the major sleep problems Would you recommend that OUP offer a publishing agreement? I think the project is reasonable." - Michael H. Kohrman MS. MD., Department of Pediatrics and Neurology, University Of Chicago, Chicago IL, 60637 "This is a worthwhile contribution to the field of sleep medicine. It presents in a concise and simple to read format a wide variety of sleep disorders presented as actual cases encountered in the Cleveland Clinic." --Doody's"A Case a Week: Sleep Disorders from the Cleveland Clinic is a fantastic resource for trainees just getting started in sleep medicine as well as for those already deeply immersed in its practice. One of the hallmarks of any good nonfiction book is that it brings the reader to look at an old problem from a new angle and to consider aspects not previously seen. This compilation of clinical cases does exactly that, many times over." -- Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine..".accessible and generously illustrates the fascinating spectrum of symptoms and problems seen in a specialized sleep clinic. Whether a useful guide for dipping into or simply a cure for insomnia, it represents good value and is thoroughly recommended. " -- Advances in Clinical Neuroscience and Rehabilitationshow more
