Description: This is one of the few classic textbooks of neurology that is considered a standard and required reading for all physicians. The two-volume multiauthored set is intended as a practical textbook covering all of the clinical neurosciences. This edition updates and revamps the approach to neurology information.
Purpose: It is intended as an authoritative, comprehensive, clinical neurology review.
Audience: It is designed not only for neurologists in training and practice, but also for clinicians in other specialties that border neurology, such as internal medicine and neurosurgery, who treat patients with neurological disease. The authors are famed for their work in the clinical neurosciences.
Features: The two volumes are organized into three distinct sections: the approach to common neurological problems; neurological investigations; and neurological diseases. This format is particularly user friendly because it is based on how problems present clinically in the real world. This edition has the added benefit of numerous helpful and illustrative videos accessible on a companion website.
Assessment: This excellent update lives up to the hype of its predecessors. This is a must have for any medical professional. No other options come close.
