Author Affiliations


Arch Neurol. 2003;60(2):288. doi:10.1001/archneur.60.2.288-a

edited by Factor SA and Weiner WJ, 716 pp, with illus, $175, ISBN 1-888799-50-1, New York, NY, Demos Medical Publishing, 2002.

In contrast with the comparably substantial movement disorder texts of a few years ago (one edited by Watts and Koller, the other by Jankovic and Tolosa) this monograph is specifically focused on Parkinson disease. As with the previous books, it is primarily by physicians for physicians, although there is appropriate treatment of the basic science underpinnings. Drs Factor and Weiner succeed in their goal of providing a "comprehensive . . . review on the multiple aspects of the disease and putting them into perspective."
