" Overall, with its comprehensive but authoritative description of most of the neuropathological conditions that physicians in training might encounter in routine practice, this book is an invaluable tool with numerous high quality pictures and clear, concise discussions. It is also inexpensive and compact compared to other neuropathology books and can be a useful tool in board preparation. This update was essential given the recent changes in the fields of neurology, pathology, and neurosurgery over the past decade."
