    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.
