Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the second, and completely revised, edition of a superb textbook on behavioral neurology.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce the key principles of behavioral neurology.
Audience: The intended audience is neurologists, psychiatrists, and psychologists.
Features: The text is divided into 10 chapters, four of which are contributed by the editor, the other six by outstanding authorities in behavioral neurology. Topics covered include behavioral neuroanatomy, neuropsychological assessment, memory, attention, aphasia, epilepsy, dementia, and psychiatric syndromes.
Assessment: This is a truly wonderful book. The editor solidifies his reputation as one of a handful of superb behavioral neurologists. He combines creative and innovative ideas with a lucid and pleasurable writing style. The book is not only pacesetting intellectually but truly pleasurable to read. The editor's first chapter on behavioral neuroanatomy is a "tour de force" and more than worth the price of admission. This is a "must have" book for anyone with even the slightest interest in cognitive neurology or behavioral neurology.
