This small textbook is multiauthored and supported by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The book is directed toward generalists who deal with patients with multiple sclerosis. It is not a pretentious book, with an emphasis on practical management using algorithms in most chapters.
However, some of the illustrations are quite poor, particularly the magnetic resonance images. In addition, it could probably use more practical tables, such as Table 5.1, which lists the drugs useful in pain management, along with doses, adverse events, and indications.
