Parkinson's Disease has traditionally been seen as a movement disorder, and diagnosed by the development of tremor. However, we are beginning to understand that the disease manifests itself in many ways, and that earlier diagnosis might be possible through non-tremor symptoms. This textbook aims to tell the full story of non-motor and non-dopaminergic features of Parkinson's Disease.

“It extensively covers clinical management aspects with many useful recommendations and should thus be very helpful to neurologists and geriatricians.  Residents should have access to the book in their departments.  After all, patients benefit from having “nerdologists” as their physicians and neurologists tend to love good books – this is one of them.”  (Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, 1 November 2012)                   

“This book is a must read for anyone who regularly sees and manages PD patients.”  (Doody’s, 23 March 2012)
