Alzheimer’s, muscular dystrophy, long COVID complications, and epilepsy are among the 480-plus neurological disorders that are covered in the latest edition of this comprehensive reference tool for consumer health collections. The volume is written by nearly 90 experienced medical writers, physicians, and other health-care professionals, and its creation is overseen by an advisory board of five experts in neurology and medicine. All entries have been updated from the third edition wherever necessary, and there are many new entries about children’s conditions, COVID-related conditions, new medications, and more. This ready reference presents entries alphabetically, and it provides an easy way to cross-reference. Avoiding the use of complex medical jargon, the book also includes a list of key terms, a general glossary, sidebars of “Questions To Ask Your Doctor” for each subject, and 190 full-color illustrations.
VERDICT An invaluable resource for general readers wanting comprehensive, up-to-date information on neurological disorder diagnoses, causes and symptoms, treatment and management options, prognoses, and possible preventative measures of each condition.
