Movement disorders, though common in both general and neurological practice, have long been regarded as mysterious diseases best considered only by subspecialty-trained neurologists. In the foreword, the authors acknowledge the increasingly important role general practitioners have in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, and the book is thus targeted primarily to generalists, residents, and nonspecialized neurologists. An effort is made by the editors to ensure a straightforward approach to diagnosis and treatment while minimizing discussion of pathophysiology and theoretic concerns that is largely successful.
