A Doody's Core Title ESSENTIAL PURCHASE for 2011!



4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"This book should be an essential element in the library of both young and seasoned clinicians....This has always been a successfully balanced textbook, combining a personal approach to the study of neurology and neurologic diseases. This edition, now 1572 pages, expands on the prior editions admirably. It achieves the difficult task of refreshing and updating a classic."--Doody's Review Service



"One of the iconic texts in clinical medicine. The fact that it is now in its ninth edition attests to its durability and credibility as a comprehensive source for the pathophysiology, evaluation, and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. First published in 1975, it has withstood the enormous changes in neurological sciences during the subsequent decades and has remained a staple on the reference shelves of practitioners from a variety of backgrounds and training levels....A unique attribute for a volume of this size is that each chapter is written by the same authors, thus achieving a uniformity of voice....As a gold standard text, the ninth edition of Adams and Victor’s Principles of Neurology would serve as valuable complement to any medical library."--World Neurosurgery Journal

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barry Hendin, MD (Phoenix Neurological Associates)
Description: This is the ninth edition of an admirable general neurology textbook which balances a general approach to understanding neurologic diseases with description of specific diseases. The eighth edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The purpose is to convey basic principles from the neurosciences while emphasizing the importance of a correct history and examination in order to understand neurological diseases. This book should be an essential element in the library of both young and seasoned clinicians. The authors have created a book which teaches an approach to understanding neurologic diseases generally and specifically.
Audience: This is a book that is equally important for young clinicians (general medical and neurological) and seasoned practitioners.
Features: The book balances broad coverage of the spectrum of neurological diseases with a model for approaching patients with neurological illnesses. This balance is the most important aspect of the book. The first chapter (on the approach to the patient with neurologic disease) should be required reading for medical students and neurology house officers. It distills the wisdom of its thoughtful and experienced authors.
Assessment: This has always been a successfully balanced textbook, combining a personal approach to the study of neurology and neurologic diseases. This edition, now 1572 pages, expands on the prior editions admirably. It achieves the difficult task of refreshing and updating a classic.
