Book Reviews

"This is an excellent book for PM&R residents in training for efficient review of basic knowledge. The Q&A style mirrors the thought process many physicians have in thinking about clinical problems. With the easy to read and extract information, it is a great go-to reference for that need-to-know, right this minute answer. This edition is better organized than the previous one, placing topics that are similar to each other (SCI, stroke, neurogenic bladder, spasticity) closer to one another." -- Brian C. Liem, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago), Doody’s Review
