Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This multiauthored monograph on Parkinson's disease in older patients updates the first edition of 2001.
Purpose: Its purpose is to provide a broad and comprehensive discussion of Parkinson's disease, incorporating the latest scientific and clinical knowledge. The authors have succeeded brilliantly in producing and outstanding text.
Audience: Neurologists, neuroscientists, geriatricians, and all physicians treating persons with Parkinson's disease will benefit from this book. Nurses, pharmacists, rehabilitation specialists, dentists, social workers, and planners will all find their areas covered in this book as well. The authors are all clearly experts in the field.
Features: The first of the book's five parts covers the history, pathology, and epidemiology of the disease. The second part on diagnosis and assessment is a brilliant discussion of the differential diagnosis and how to assess the quality of life of these patients. The third part on nonmotor dysfunction details the important aspects of neuropsychiatry, autonomic dysfunction, speech and oral care, and sleep disturbances. The fourth part on motor dysfunction discusses gait and falls and driving assessment. The fifth part covers various aspects of therapy and management including rehabilitation, drugs, neurosurgery, organization of care, and palliative aspects. The appendixes include rating scales, websites and algorithms.
Assessment: This is a brilliant book from start to finish. It is the best and most complete discussion of Parkinson's disease extant. The numerous tables, diagrams, and algorithms are all clear and add much information. The flow of the book, from the intellectual history of the disease to the current science, from establishing the diagnosis to the comprehensive management of the patient (and his or her carers) makes it engaging throughout. This book illustrates the breadth and depth and complexity of geriatric medicine in the real world. This handsome gem of a book will sell out like the first edition. Get your copy now.
