The authors state in their preface that the primary purpose of this book is to present a concise and practical text for the practicing physician that integrates both electrodiagnostic (electromyography and nerve conduction studies) and clinical aspects of the neuromuscular disorders. The present volume has succeeded well in this regard and should be a welcome addition to the library of any physician or student who is interested in peripheral nervous system disorders, particularly those who are not already adept at the practice of electrodiagnostic medicine. The book is well written and sensibly laid out so that it is easy to access information.
