Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Amaal Jilani Starling, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This book uses beautiful, memorable Netter drawings to highlight neurologic conditions. This update of the 2005 first edition adds to the clinical relevance of each neurologic condition by incorporating more imaging studies, diagnostic approaches, and updated treatment options.
Purpose: Frank Netter firmly believed that "a picture is worth a thousand words," and this concept underlies every Netter publication. This book uses detailed color plates to tell the story of various neurologic conditions. By blending neuroanatomy with clinical pearls, this is a clinically relevant piece of art for neurology.
Audience: Students of medicine, residents, and practicing physicians from internal medicine to neurology will benefit from this book. The editors are dedicated to Frank Netter's concept teaching through pictures.
Features: This book does an excellent job of covering various neurologic conditions, from bread-and-butter neurology to the zebras in our field; for example Parkinson's disease to Wilson's disease or ALS to Stiff Person Syndrome. The illustrations and clinical vignettes make this book unique and desirable. For the visual learner, this book is invaluable.
Assessment: The book uniquely blends neuroanatomy with clinical descriptions and vignettes to tell a story about each illustration for the various disorders. The beautiful illustrations by Netter and Machado help solidify neurologic conditions in a learner's brain. As a visual learner, I have found Netter's illustrations to be invaluable to my medical/neurology education. The second edition has more clinical relevance with an increase in the number of vignettes.
