"This book is a good start at pulling together all of the parts of a person's life affected by ALS. It contains comprehensive information and covers the issues patients and families deal with."- Mary Kugler, R.N., About.com Rare Diseases
"Well written and avoids jargon and highly technical language. It would serve as a useful introduction to clinicians who are dealing with ALS for the first time as well as a guide to patients and families. - Physical Therapy
"This is truly the most comprehensive manual available for the management of ALS. It is an obligatory resource for patients with ALS and their families and for the health care professionals helping to look after them." -- Archives of Neurology
"... a very comprehensive guide to medical treatment, rehabilitation, day-to-day living, end-of-life issues, and supportive resources." -- Disability Resources Monthly"...there's no better reference on the subject than the extensive Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, now updated and thoroughly revised. New information on new treatments, the use of noninvasive ventilators, and new guidelines by the AAN for treatments make this an essential key acquisition for any health library".-- California Bookwatch, July 2009

I am not sure if I am allowed to do this or not, but here it goes:
If you are looking for a personal account of ALS, I would recommend "Riding Sideways" by Darla Burns
also, "I Choose to Live" by William Sinton. This book, however, becomes an autobiography halfway through, for a few chapters, but it is a great view on his journey. Both books had made me realize certain details or aggravations that Dr Mitsumoto doesn't cover.
