Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This has been a classic neurology resource since 1955, which has, over time, added more detail, more pages, and more experts contributing to its authorship, in addition to an online version of the book. This edition has now added level 1 citations for all management recommendations. There has been an extensive review of current and up-to-date treatments. It is thorough and covers a great range of topics and does so in evidence-based ways."

-- Michelle Braslavsky, DO (Thomas Jefferson University)Doody's Review

"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 audience is neurology residents and practitioners. The book would be a useful resource for general neurologists wishing to have an overview of specific diseases, a refresher on neurological exam features, or to think broadly about a differential diagnosis.
