A highly specialized book like this requires expertise and a unique perspective, and there are no comparable books. The authors have been able to present the information concisely and simply, resulting in an easy to read book. * Doody's Notes *

I would have no hesitation in adding this book to my own departmental library as a reference book for DMD. * Neuromuscular Disorders Journal *
