Editorial Reviews

Review

"The contributors are frank about the changes patients may expect and provide common-sense advice about meeting the cognitive challenges, which range far wider than one would expect...The text is fully accessible to patients already involved with the management of their condition."--Book News

"...Helpful to anyone who deals in any form with [MS], patients, family, and clinicians of all levels."--CAPHIS Consumer Health Connections

"This welcome addition to the MS literature invites those with concerns about MS-related cognitive change to exchange uncertainty and confusion for the information and strategies they need to get on with their lives. With caring, warmth, and even subtle humor, the authors have made a difficult subject approachable and understandable."-- Linda Buchwald MD, Multiple Sclerosis Care Center, Mount Auburn Hospital, Cambridge, Massachusetts (Linda Buchwald MD "Multiple Sclerosis Care Center, Mount Auburn Hospital, Cambridge, Massachusetts" 2010-05-03)

Like so many topics relating to multiple sclerosis, cognitive challenges are hard to pinpoint because they vary among patients and can be affected by other factors as well, such as age or other neurologic conditions. I thought the authors have done a good job listing and defining elements of the subject: cognition, the assessment of cognitive changes, treatment, and coping and/or managing strategies.

I must insist that fatigue does effect cognitive abilities. Most of us with the disease will probably agree that tasks requiring cognitive skills are better fulfilled early in the day or after a period of rest. More tests of this connection will, I believe, bear out the ideas given here.

This is definitely an important read for MS-ers and those who interact with them.

As a Multiple Sclerosis Certified Nurse who also has MS, I found this to be a fairly comprehensive, yet easily understood discussion of why we sometimes falter mentally with MS. The description and role of neuropsychological testing in treatment and defining disability was sketchy at best but did provide a basic underpinning for the logic of doing this type of testing.

What I did not agree with was the role of fatigue and cognitive deficit. The authors were clear that they were aware of this correlation but could find no proof. Their sample sizes in the studies done in this area were, admittedly, quite small.

This book was an easy read but it shared alot of information. I have a personal interest in the subject of this book. I was pleased that it was NOT written like a medical journal. I reccommend it to anyone interested in MS.
