Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel B. Hier, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book is an introductory text to behavioral neurology. It is uniquely organized as 100 maxims which are meant to be '"clinical rules" or "clinical pearls" for the clinician.
Purpose: It is designed to provide an introduction to behavioral neurology which provides useful clinical rules for the clinician, although it is only partially successful.
Audience: The book is aimed at neurologists and neurology residents.
Features: The book has many useful summary tables and clear black-and-white line diagrams.
Assessment: The organization as maxims rather than chapters gives this book a readable style. At times the author appears to be struggling between writing a conventional textbook of behavioral neurology and writing a book of maxims. In general, this is a very successful introduction to behavioral neurology. Material is clearly covered but at an introductory level. Neurologists or neuropsychologists will find this as a useful entry level text.

This new Mosby 100 Maxims series addresses neurological disorders that lend themselves to 100 guiding principles for diagnosis and treatment. The ideal list of maxims comes from the author's own experience, as well as from recognition of those errors of diagnosis and treatment made most frequently. The first monograph in the series is this concise introduction to behavioral neurology, focusing on the essential elements of diagnosis and therapy. Devinsky (chief, Department of Neurology, Hospital for Joint Diseases, New York U. School of Medicine) balances between a vivid prose that best portrays normal and abnormal behavioral patterns and the format of Maxims, aiming for a succinct and focused description. Annotation c.
