'... a second edition could evolve into a tome on Parkinsonism and other movement disorders in later life. ... The editors and their publishers are encouraged to start planning a more comprehensive second edition with wider authorship and a more ambitious aim.' Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine 'The emphasis of this book is on the importance of the role of multidisciplinary rehabilitation teams. Patient symptoms and care are seen holistically, medically, emotionally and psychologically. This is an informative book, which is extensively referenced and succeeds in building the reader's understanding of Parkinson's disease and Parkinsonism.' Community Practitioner 'There are very few books that deal with the problems of the elderly Parkinsonian patient and anyone interested would find this book of potential value.' British Journal of Neurosurgery 'I enjoyed reading this excellent comprehensive textbook that covers an area that has not hitherto been specifically addressed. It has been well-edited by this transatlantic duo and is a pleasure to read ... well-balanced, informative and well-referenced comprehensive textbook ... Overall, this book is timely and represents good value for money. I would certainly recommend it as a valuable addition to any hospital library, and I am sure that I shall make good use of mine.' D. G. McMahon, Age and Ageing
