Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Joseph I. Sirven, MD (Mayo Clinic Hospital)
Description: The primary focus of this book is on an approach to neurology based on patients' symptoms or signs. Chapters are organized according to physical problems such as headaches, seizures, stroke, or coma rather than based on a catalog of specific diseases.
Purpose: New and effective treatments have been incorporated into the therapy section. Sections devoted to neurobiology have been extensively updated and expanded with attention to magnetic resonance and computed tomography images. Step-by-step descriptions of the neurological examination, laboratory investigations, and treatment are then outlined at length.
Audience: The book is presented as a teaching tool for students and practitioners. The focus of the book and its easy readability will appeal to a full spectrum of healthcare providers.
Features: The 10 chapters are dedicated to disorders of cognitive function, headache and facial pain, disorders of equilibrium, disturbances of vision, motor deficits, disorders of somatic sensation, movement disorders, seizures and syncope, stroke and coma. A comprehensive approach to diagnosis, medical history, neurological examination, laboratory investigations, and treatments is then described. Included are detailed images and illustrations. Each chapter is extensively referenced and a lengthy list of frequently used neurologic drugs is included.
Assessment: This edition of the classic book has been updated and revised to make it even more clinically relevant. A quick overview of each topic is provided to be translated into advanced patient therapy. Besides its quality, focus, and easy readability, the book is light and convenient to hold, read, and access at a moment's notice.
