Review quote

"This book, the combined effort of 136 authors in 95 chapters, covers a broad spectrum of neurologic disorders... This is an international book that portrays practices in Europe and North America. For neurologists in other parts of the world, it is certainly a welcome experience... Well-selected references give a balanced view of each disease, particularly those in which substantial controversies about therapeutics remain... a fine effort that brings together not only a wealth of treatments for neurologic disorders, but also data of enormous value for decision making. It even provides elements for discussion between the clinician and the patient on the important issue of cost and benefit."
"This is an important new reference work that will be a valuable resource for diverse reader."
--ROBERT A. FISHMAN, San Francisco, California
"Well written... the chapter on orthopaedic assessment is particularly valuable to the medical specialist who may not be aware of the various musculoskeletal disorders leading to gait impairment... It will serve as a valued resource to the experienced specialty physician... seeking to expand her knowledge in the pathophysiology of gait disturbances."
--Maureen Shandling, in LANCET
