Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rita A. Shapiro, DO (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This multiauthored new book devotes its first section to personal reflections on the multifaceted greatness and influence of Dr. Norman Geschwind. The larger second section contains four sections arranged chronologically by subject groupings of his works, with accompanying current commentary by experts.
Purpose: Current leaders in behavioral neurology and related neuroscience, consisting primarily of past colleagues of or physicians-in-training under Dr. Geschwind, describe his tremendous impact on their lives as well as in their fields of expertise. This cumulative effort serves to create a lasting tribute to the memory and widespread influence of Dr. Geschwind.
Audience: This book is expected to be of interest primarily to neurologists, especially behavioral neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, speech pathologists, cognitive psychologists, and interested neuroscientists.
Features: Thirty-one eminent clinicians in neurobehavior or neuroscience contributed to this well organized book. It contains exemplary diagrams as well as interesting photographs of Dr. Geschwind and his peers from the 1960s through 1984.
Assessment: Dr. Norman Geschwind was a brilliant captivating clinician, teacher, and pioneer in developing the field of behavioral neurology in the postwar United States. He personally trained or influenced most of the present leaders in the field. His respected colleagues and trainees create a lasting tribute to Dr. Geschwind. These experts describe his widespread influence from a personal perspective and also provide a professionally updated commentary on most of his major works.

A collection of 32 essays honoring Geschwind's life and work as a pioneer in behavioral neurology. The contributing neurologists and behavioral scientists reflect on Geschwind's influence on their own personal and professional growth, eulogizing his personality, and roles as teacher, creative genius, and colleague. Additionally, selected essays examine the scientist's seminal contributions to the study of language disorders, disorders of higher cortical functions, epilepsy, the relationship between handedness, cerebral dominance, and autoimmune disease.
