''This book, written in an objective and sensitive manner, puts many years of experience in abnormal movements into a valuable textbook, making practical knowledge available to anyone pursuing this complex branch of paediatrics. Importantly, not only is thequality of the chapters uniformly rather high, but the authors have also created a coherence that is difficult to find in other multi-author books.This remarkably well written book is a pleasure to read and to learn from. Movement Disorders in Childhood is highly recommended for medical students, residents, neuropaediatricians, adult neurologists, and paediatricians.I would encourage anyone interested in movement disorders to obtain a copy.''
