The authors are highly credible authorities in this field.
Features: This book covers broad aspects of clinical neurology necessary fro clinical practice. The organization is unique, starting from patient approach, cardinal manifestations of neurological disease, to specific neruological diseases. New develpments in neurology, such as molecular neurology and genetics, are incorporated in this edition. The inherited metabolic, congenital, developmental, and psychiatric disorders are largely emphasized.
Assessment: This edition inherits the tradition of elegant writing from its previous editions and expands on the information presented. The authors are highly respected authorities in the field, although Dr. Adams is no longer the official author. This book is still the "bible" of neurology.
