Editorial Reviews

Bruce E. Johnson
The fifth edition of this manual covers, in an expanded outline format, the field of clinical neurology. It is especially directed toward the generalist practitioner. According to the author, the book has been rewritten to be more accessible to the nonneurologist. It emphasizes state-of-the-art treatments that are cost-effective and generally within the practice of the generalist. A reorientation of this type expands the scope of the book. The book targets residents and practitioners, especially generalist physicians. It is successfully written at a level to be useful to this audience. There are only a few tables or figures; several chapters have no illustrations. The references are selective and are not meant to be comprehensive. The table of contents and index are adequate. Because the book is spiral bound, this book is more likely to be found in a resident's jacket or backpack, an unfortunate limitation. A valuable appendix lists names and addresses of patient information and advocacy groups for several dozen neurologic conditions. This book is a good addition to any generalist's library. It is quite comprehensive and yet is written to be useful to the generalist practitioner. (The expanded outline format works well in this regard.) Both diagnostic tests and therapeutics are up-to-date and recommended in a useful, prudent manner. The spiral binding makes any book awkward to store on a bookshelf and may, unfortunately, limit the potential audience. By focusing on the capabilities of the generalist, this new edition is a substantial improvement.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Bruce E. Johnson, MD (University of Kansas School of Medicine)
Description: The fifth edition of this manual covers, in an expanded outline format, the field of clinical neurology. It is especially directed toward the generalist practitioner.
Purpose: According to the author, the book has been rewritten to be more accessible to the nonneurologist. It emphasizes state-of-the-art treatments that are cost-effective and generally within the practice of the generalist. A reorientation of this type expands the scope of the book.
Audience: The book targets residents and practitioners, especially generalist physicians. It is successfully written at a level to be useful to this audience.
Features: There are only a few tables or figures; several chapters have no illustrations. The references are selective and are not meant to be comprehensive. The table of contents and index are adequate. Because the book is spiral bound, this book is more likely to be found in a resident's jacket or backpack, an unfortunate limitation. A valuable appendix lists names and addresses of patient information and advocacy groups for several dozen neurologic conditions.
Assessment: This book is a good addition to any generalist's library. It is quite comprehensive and yet is written to be useful to the generalist practitioner. (The expanded outline format works well in this regard.) Both diagnostic tests and therapeutics are up-to-date and recommended in a useful, prudent manner. The spiral binding makes any book awkward to store on a bookshelf and may, unfortunately, limit the potential audience. By focusing on the capabilities of the generalist, this new edition is a substantial improvement.
