Library Journal - Library JournalIn a straightforward, detailed, and lively style, the author provides fascinating insight into one of the less-heralded but tremendously challenging fields of medicine, clinical neurology. Martin, a non-physician writer, chronicles the life, practice, and ethical issues confronting a longtime friend and practicing neurologist. Each of the chapters deals with a category of neurological diseasee.g., tumor, seizures, multiple sclerosis. Medical terminology and explanations are skillfully intertwined with patient vignettes and heartfelt conversations over the approach to the patient with a chronic disabling neurological disease. This compassionate and riveting book is highly recommended for all medical and large public libraries.Mark L. Dembert, M.D. Navy Environmental Health Ctr., Norfolk, Va.
