Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A necessary resource for patients and their caregivers to have on hand.”—Doody’s Reviews

“A practical, informative, and medically sound instructional guide to dealing with the day-to-day difficulties induced by MS...A 'reader accessible' resource written especially for those with MS and their medical/familial caretakers.”—The Bookwatch

“Provides a roadmap for patients and professionals to symptomatic relief of MS symptoms...Schapiro doesn't merely provide medical or surgical solutions, he offers lifestyle strategies as well.”—PA Today

“Recommend[ed] not only for patients but also for doctors and other health professionals that, although not specialized in MS, come in contact with these patients."—Scandinavian Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine

“A very helpful book for those who treat multiple sclerosis patients...Recommended for neurologists, general physicians, physiotherapists and postgraduate students.”—World Neurology

“Written for people with multiple sclerosis, but the comprehensive contents would be of use to undergraduate students or junior practitioners unfamiliar with the area. As such, it would be a useful resource for any multiple sclerosis group or treatment center and a helpful addition to a departmental library.”—Physiotherapy
