Although this book covers much interesting information, it has idiosyncratic definitions (illness = disability?!), bizarre vaguenesses and sometimes outright contradictions.

For instance, on page 121:
Symptoms of idiopathic torsion dystonia usually appear in early childhood, always before the age of 10. If symptoms do not appear by 30 years of age, they will rarely appear at a later age.

Well, what is it? Do symptoms always appear before the age of 10, or do they sometimes appear as late as 35?
