"This continues to be a classic general neurology textbook for anyone's neurological library."

-- Dan Capampangan, MD (Mayo Clinic Arizona) Doody's Review - previous edition


The authors suggest the book will appeal to medical students, residents, practicing neurologists, non-neurology clinicians, nurses, and other allied healthcare professionals. Sub-specialty neurologists also will find this book useful for general overviews of common and somewhat uncommon neurological conditions that may be outside the scope of their practice.
