"The best feature of this book is the link to all the video clips noted in the chapters. This is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to learn about movement disorders because visualizing the movements is crucial. I commend the authors for this outstanding addition and I appreciate the time and preparation that was devoted to developing this. This textbook is an adjunct to the yearly Movement Disorders Course that is hosted by the authors in Aspen, CO. I highly recommend the course and this textbook for anyone, from medical students to nurses to neurologists and movement disorders specialists, who is interested in a comprehensive review of movement disorders."
