Description: The title of this book describes the purpose and objectives of the book. It was previously published in 1999.
Purpose: This book aims to educate healthcare professionals, who though not neurologists by training, deal routinely with nervous system disorders. It provides excellent background information, with up-to-date diagnostic and treatment strategies. The book successfully meets its objectives, as well as the reader's expectations.
Audience: The target audience includes physicians particularly in the fields of internal medicine, family medicine, psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine. Advanced practice nurses and physicians in training will also find this book of tremendous value. The authors include well known clinicians and educators in neurology.
Features: The book is written in a very reader friendly format. Each chapter covers information that ranges from the more basic to the more complex. There are helpful charts and illustrations, and questions with discussion at the end of each chapter that highlights important concepts. This book can serve as an easy reference for specific questions, but is also very inviting as one to be read cover to cover.
Assessment: This book is very well conceived and written, and continues to be a valued resource for clinicians who routinely manage patients with neurologic concerns or disorders. It is very up-to-date on diagnostic and treatment strategies.
