Arch Neurol. 2006;63(1):152. doi:10.1001/archneur.63.1.152-a

edited by Israel Hanin, PhD, Ramon Cacabelos, MD, PhD, DMSci, and Abraham Fisher, PhD, 383 pp, with illus, $139.95, ISBN 1-84184-320-2, London, England, Taylor & Francis Group, 2005.

This book is a compilation of the proceedings of a meeting on the title subject, held in Seville, Spain, in May 2003. Fittingly, it opens with a stunning photo of Queen Sophia of Spain, who was the honorary president of this meeting and supported it generously. The editors dedicate the book to her. A total of 46 presentations are gathered into 46 book chapters. Each includes from 2 to 12 pages of text and a list of references, with as few as 13 and as many as 100 references. Despite the large number of authors, the prose is remarkably clear as a result of the editorial work. The type is large and the spacing open, making the text very readable.
