Editorial Reviews

Melanie M. Brandabur
This book provides a discussion of multiple aspects of Parkinson's disease in a question-and-answer format. It offers a concise review of diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment considerations for practitioners involved in the treatment of this patient population. Although the authors do not identify a specific audience for whom this book is intended, it seems to have been written for the general neurologist or primary care physician who does not regularly treat patients with this condition. Most practitioners, after a brief perusal of the book, would be prepared to answer many of the common questions put to them by patients with Parkinson's disease and their caregivers. In addition, although the book presumes some degree of medical knowledge (not all terms are defined in lay terms), patients or family members who have already familiarized themselves with the basic vocabulary of Parkinson's disease might find this volume useful. Brief but fairly dense answers are given to a wide variety of questions ranging from "What are the cardinal features of Parkinson's disease?" to "What are the different types of dopamine receptors?" Many of the answers are accompanied by high-quality illustrations that clarify the discussion. This is a helpful book for general neurologists or other health professionals to review and update their basic knowledge of the clinical presentation, pathology, and treatment of Parkinson's disease. It is probably too sophisticated for the average patient without some prior knowledge base.

This book is an overview of common questions regarding Parkinson's disease. It is written in a question and answer format. It gives a brief history into the disease along with some of the advances in treatment. The purpose is to educate the general internist, neurologist, and resident about Parkinson's disease by addressing common questions that arise in the treatment of these patients. It would be useful at student, resident, and general internist levels. It is written in a concise question and answer format. It is easy to read and understand. It is not ambiguous. Treatment options are explained in an accessible manner. Diagrams are clear and easy to interpret. I found this book to be a very good overview of Parkinson's disease. It is a brief, concise overview, which would educate at different levels. It is a useful tool for board review. The book would not be of benefit to the practicing neurologist. It oversimplified the disease in this regard. I believe this is a great book for those reviewing the disease or learning about it for the first time. I found the various diagrams to be helpful and easy to interpret because of their clarity and simplicity.

    Very Helpful

    As a student trying to learn about PD, I found this book informative and helpful. I plan to obtain it for the library at the Parkinson's Center I am interning at, and would highly recommend it for anyone interested in any facet of PD.
