PS Is there a new edition in the pipeline? a 2005 edition is somewhat outdated when it comes to diagnosis, outcomes, therapeutic options, clinical trials, and at times even legal/insurance issues.
I would really appreciate it if someone could give me the heads up on it, or anything else pertaining to ALS education and treatment. I can be contacted through "the bookish trader" on amazon.
