Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Charles C Wang, MD, MS (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book uses a unique organization style to provide readers the most updated, practical clinical information in neurology.
Purpose: The editors attempt to provide a text that parallels the manner in which physicians actually approach neurological patients in everyday practice.
Audience: This book is suitable for different levels of readers, from students and residents to clinical practitioners, including primary care physicians.
Features: It systematically covers a broad range of clinically necessary information from anatomical localization to neurological diagnostic methods to individual neurological diseases. The best feature is a unique organizational style containing the most up-to-date clinical knowledge. There are quite a few fine pictures and algorithms; the printing style is good. Some subjects like myasthenia gravis are underemphasized and some small mistakes have been found.
Assessment: This book is clinically useful, practical, and readable. It has quite a few international authorities as authors. Its organization style is fresh and new to readers. I believe that it will be a good reference book in hospital units, clinics, and in the hands of students and residents.
