Review quote

..".a much welcomed book...The authors successfully present a practical approach to peripheral neuropathies...Numerous tables and figures help integrate the knowledge and form a quick reference when evaluating a patient with peripheral neuropathy. The book is affordable and small, making it easy to carry during the neuromuscular rotation or in the clinic...I enjoyed reading Peripheral Neuropathies in Clinical Practice and would recommend it to both trainees and practicing neurologists." --Chafic Karam, MD"Peripheral Neuropathies in Clinical Practice is well written, up-to-date, and well illustrated, providing a logical and comprehensive approach to peripheral nerve diseases. Any clinician would be able to use it to find specific facts as well as understand how to approach a category of disorders. Therefore, this book would prove useful to any practitioner or practitioner-in-training who would want an easily accessible and comprehensive textbook on peripheral neuropathy. I strongly recommend this textbook as a reference work as well as a clinical manual, because it contains all of the information necessary for the physician treating patients who have peripheral nerve disease." --Daniel L.
