“Movement Disorders: A Video Atlas” by Roongroj Bhidayasiri and Daniel Tarsy is a good looking book; however, the DVD associated with it makes it more valuable and interesting.
Several aspects of movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, chorea, tic disorder, etc. have been well described with case studies which are also available in the DVD. Almost all aspects of the different symptoms as well as the videos is really a rare combination and novel idea. The different signs and symptoms, their diagnosis as well as clinical conditions in almost all type of movement disorders have been described which will be a great boost for the readers.
I am very much impressed with the approach and wish all the best for the future of the book. This book can be recommended to clinicians as well as young researchers and students in the field of movement disorders. This book will help budding scientists and students as well as clinicians in every aspect. There cannot be a better approach than to publish a book like this. I heartily congratulate the authors and the editor.
