In the second edition of The Clinical Neuropsychiatry of Multiple Sclerosis, Feinstein offers a comprehensive account of the variety of neuropsychiatric disorders encountered with multiple sclerosis (MS). He seamlessly integrates his exceptional knowledge of and experience in the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and physical sequelae of MS with an exhaustive review of the relevant literature. The Clinical Neuropsychiatry of Multiple Sclerosis is both wide enough in scope and well organized to be practical in clinical settings yet detailed and referenced enough to be useful in research and teaching. Feinstein's extensive experience in this area is readily demonstrated by his many important articles over his career. Throughout each chapter he consistently and successfully combines an insightful analysis of the literature with his experience and informed opinion into a summary of the main findings. One of the highlights of this text is his ability to consistently do just that in a manner that is thoughtful and thought provoking.
