Tourette syndrome (TS) is finally recognized as a common neurodevelopmental disorder, and has gained increasingly high social awareness and scientific interest worldwide. Knowledge of its clinical presentation, mechanisms of disease, and available treatment approaches has increased remarkably over the last decade. Likewise, the way clinicians, teachers, social care workers and families face the problems manifested by patients with TS is rapidly evolving. Tourette Syndrome, edited by Davide Martino and James F. Leckman, offers a unique opportunity to capture this interesting momentum through a comprehensive and up-to-date overview. Tourette Syndrome covers all of the main aspects related to TS, analyzing the complexity of its clinical presentation, the novel viewpoints of causes and mechanisms, the best way to assess TS patients, and the multifaceted and multidisciplinary treatment options. The multidisciplinary and up-to-date content is the main asset of this volume, which represents a useful source of consultation for a wide audience of professionals, all of whom will have access to what is known so far on TS within their particular area of expertise, at the same time being able to expand and update their knowledge in other areas. Medical and PhD students, as well as post-doctoral scientists, will be able to use the volume as a valuable learning source. Also, questions for future research are clearly presented in the volume, providing a summary of the viewpoint of the contributing authors upon where research on TS should be heading. Finally, clinicians and other health professionals will have access at a glance to the main patients' associations and organizations dedicated to TS worldwide, which can facilitate the direct contact with patients.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Tourette Syndrome (TS)... is evident at every level, from behavior to molecules, and it has soundly rebuffed every effort to view it otherwise... Perhaps no single investigator is more responsible for bringing a deeper awareness of TS to our field than is Dr. James Leckman. In this comprehensive text, Martino and Leckman embrace the complexities of TS, engaging a world-class group of clinicians and scientists to update us on its various clinical presentations, likely etiologies, diagnostic strategies and multimodal treatments, closing with a section describing important community-based resources for TS patients, families, educators, scientists and clinicians. This is an invaluable source text on Tourette Syndrome, and a primer on how to understand complex neuropsychiatric phenotypes, for readers in Psychiatry, Neurology and Pediatrics, from trainees to senior practitioners.
-- Neal R. Swerdlow, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego


"Davide Martino and James Leckman have done a superb job in bringing together authoritative authors and have set the contemporary agenda for treatment and study of Tourette syndrome. Comprehensive and critical reviews of the evidence are presented with fresh thinking spanning the whole range from molecular biology to classroom management. Clinicians and investigators will want to turn to this book, to the benefit of our patients."
-- Dr. Jeremy S. Stern, Neurologist and Honorary Medical Director, Tourettes Action, Surrey, UK


This seminal volume covers all relevant aspects (and more) concerning TS and will set standards for many years to come. Several chapters include case vignettes which makes for an easy and practical read. Especially interesting are the "Questions for future research" which conclude each chapter and will surely pave the way for much of the relevant science that needs to be conducted on TS over the next ten to twenty years. Also, the fact that the TS research and clinical community now spans the globe is well reflected by this book and should inspire hope in all TS sufferers and their families. Overall, I am confident that this volume will become an invaluable resource for myself and my colleagues, both in specialist and non-specialist settings. Highly recommended and much applauded.
-- Andreas Hartmann, MD, Department of Neurology, Hopital de la Pitie-Salpetriere, Paris, France


Tourette Syndrome is a comprehensive multi-author book relevant to the understanding and management of people with Tourette syndrome. The book covers all aspects of Tourette syndrome including clinical phenomenology, co-morbidity, pathophysiology, therapy and support... provides in depth analysis and updates on genetics, neurochemistry and neuroimmunology, but also provides equal priority to the practicalities of management including family support and psychoeducation. The 'balance' of the book is excellent, and demonstrated by the therapeutic sections that discuss the merits and challenges of pharmacological and surgical approaches, but also the exciting and emerging psychological and behavioural therapies. The excellent editorial tone is apparent... This book is a 'Tour de force' in Tourette syndrome, and a must-have for people who care about this disorder.
-- Russell C. Dale, Paediatric Movement Disorder Service, Children's Hospital at Westmead, University of Sydney, Australia


"This is probably the most comprehensive, important, and valuable book ever written on Tourette syndrome. The editors and ... contributors ... have done a marvelous job indeed." --Biz India
