Overview

The authority of Harrison's in a handy, full-color paperback devoted exclusively to Neurology in Clinical Medicine

"...continues to be a hallmark

work that provides a fundamental

approach to understanding

clinical neurology and at the same

time presents comprehensive information

on current pathogenic concepts

and new diagnostic and therapeutic

approaches that have been

introduced into clinical practice....This book is highly recommended

for everybody interested in

clinical neurology. For students who

have not yet received much exposure

to patients with neurological

disease, it serves as a textbook that

brings the structure that they need

to understand neurology. For experienced

neurologists who are being

confronted with clinical neurological

problems on a daily basis, it

serves as a stable, reliable, and up-to-

date source of information that

cannot be equaled by the Internet."—Archives of Neurology
