Doody Review ServicesReviewer: Daniel B Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description:This is a concisely written pocket handbook of clinical neurology written "by residents for residents."
Purpose:It is designed to be a portable quick reference tool for neurology residents needing quick access to neurology references during clinical care.
Audience:This book is designed for neurology residents. However, medical students rotating on neurology will also find this book useful.
Features:The book is organized alphabetically into brief topics followed by a few key references after each topic. Topics run from abscess and aneurysm to West syndrome and Wilson's disease. Discussions are brief but useful. The diagrams suffer from the compression needed to achieve a 4 inch by 6 inch format. However, the book does fit conveniently into a lab coat pocket.
Assessment:The book is filled with much useful information for the neurology house officer. It contains much information that the house officer needs but has not yet committed to memory. It is a rich source of concise information. Combined with its small size, this makes it an attractive addition to the side pocket of the neurology house officer's lab coat.
