Editorial Review by Michele Messmer Uccelli, BA, MSCS:
As a limitation, there are no non-physician authors, thus, the book misses the valuable input other professionals could provide, particularly in the areas of symptomatic treatment, rehabilitation and service delivery.
On an aesthetic level, the design of the book is rather monotonous, tables are not well-designed and are difficult to follow and the use of italics throughout the book may be cumbersome for some people with visual difficulties.
Apart from these few shortcomings, Multiple Sclerosis: the Guide is an excellent resource for people with MS and healthcare professionals, particularly for those interested in a reference source that provides key details on MS treatments in a concise manner.About the Reviewer:
