Neurodegenerative Diseases is one of the most comprehensive books to appear on the subject in the past decade. There are more focused texts, such as the excellent and well-written Neurodegenerative Dementias, edited by Clark and Trojanowski, Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases, edited by Chesselet, and Pathogenesis of Neurodegenerative Disorders, edited by Mattson. But, unlike them, Neurodegenerative Diseases discusses all the neurodegenerative illnesses, with special attention to biological, pathophysiological, clinical, and therapeutic aspects, rather than focusing on a single facet.
