This books’ coverage ranges from incidence, diagnosis, investigation, drug treatments, non-motor features of Parkinson’s Disease, assessment scales and surgical intervention, to the role of nurses, physio– and occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, dieticians, and to the use of complementary medicine.


This easy-to-read book ably summarizes Parkinson's disease…highly recommended as a model of clarity

Clinical Medicine

Excellent diagrams, charts and tables presented in easily readable pastels…There are only two UK contributors but the content is relevant to the UK reader; particularly the well-summarised facts and figures chapter but also those dealing with clinical aspects and drug treatments…Notwithstanding the international dimensions to this book, it is indeed a concise, practical and useful resource.

—Peter Fletcher, Age and Ageing, May 2010
