Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The set’s wealth of information makes compelling reading...Highly recommended."
-J. Kushner, James Madison University

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Celso Agner, MD, MS, MSc (Michigan Neurology Partners)
Description: The development of neurological sciences in the past few decades has been unparalleled. Due to its complexity, summarization of its major features is, at the least, challenging. This four-volume set is an encyclopedic approach to the study of neurological sciences.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to collect, in an encyclopedic format, the diverse facets of the neurological sciences, how to diagnose disorders, and how to treat them. These are challenging and worthy objectives that are entirely met by the authors.
Audience: The target audience for this book includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroscientists, and psychiatrists, either in the middle of their training or the beginning of their practices. The authors are leading authorities in the multiple fields of neuroscience.
Features: This book is a collaborative effort from experts in neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and neuroscience who deal with multiple complex neurological problems. In four volumes, the editors have compiled neurological disorders in alphabetical order. The pictures are of excellent quality, the references are up-to-date, and the index is extremely helpful in finding topics.
Assessment: This is a must buy for any library. The wonderful quality of the work, added to its well-written text and superb pictures, make this a new masterpiece of neurological sciences.

4 Stars! from Doody

He completed postdoctoral training in various London teaching hospitals, but especially at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Queen Square, London, and at its affiliated Institute of Neurology, where his research on spinal physiology gained him an MD degree (an advanced research thesis in the UK). He joined UCSF Medical Center in 1974, becoming a full professor in 1982; the title of distinguished professor was conferred on him in 2010. In 2000, he was awarded a doctorate in science (an advanced doctorate in the Faculty of Science) from the University of London. He has received numerous awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (2006) and the A.B.Baker Award from the American Academy of Neurology (2007). He was the editor-in-chief of Muscle and Nerve, a major neuroscience journal for 10 years; serves on the editorial boards of several other medical and scientific journals; and has authored nearly 250 research publications as well as numerous books. Dr. Aminoff is also editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Neurological Sciences and series editor of the multivolume Handbook of Clinical Neurology (Elsevier).
