Editorial Reviews


Praise for the First Edition:

"Muscle biopsy is an art, and to be done well requires a specialized laboratory with histochemical capabilities, an interest in the subject, and training and experience in the field. The authors have met those requirements and have produced a book on muscle biopsy pathology that will be the standard reference work in this area for many years ... The color illustrations of muscle histochemical reactions prove once again that a muscle biopsy can be a thing of beauty. These color plates are the best available ... "--Annals of Internal Medicine

"Here is a coherent, authoritative, and extensively illustrated reference work on human skeletal muscle pathology ...The greatest strengths of this book are the correlative approach of the authors and the high quality of the illustrations. It should be an important reference work for physicians, particularly neurologists, pathologists, specialists in rehabilitation medicine, and others involved in the care of patients with neuromuscular diseases."--The New England Journal of Medicine

"This is a large, beautifully illustrated labor of love extensively covering, with black and white photographs and a few in color, the subject given in its title ...The volume will become a standard in any substantial library."--Annals of Neurology

"In my opinion, this is the best and most complete book available on skeletal muscle pathology today and I believe that it will quickly become the standard teaching and reference text on this subject."--The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences

"... the textbook they have written must be one of the best ever produced on muscle pathology ... the working myologist will want to have it at hand rather than be dependent on a library copy."--Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry

"The book provides a unified and consistent clinicopathological viewpoint in each section...the book should be of interest to all physicians, scientists, and students who wish to obtain an appreciation of muscular disease at the cellular and subcellular level."--J.Neurosurg Volume 97, August 2002
