RECENTLY REVIEWED
"In summary, the updated edition represents a worthwhile source of evaluated, evidence-based insights into up-to-date clinical neurological examination and valuable specific tests helping to ensure proper techniques in neurological diagnosis." - European Journal of Neurology Volume 21, Issue 1 January 2014  Page e7.

"Most of us in practice will appreciate the balance of anatomy and pathophysiology here, as we are typically consulting such texts..."
"This textbook, however, can play an important role in medical education at all levels."
