"I found the text to be quite readable, well organized, and well illustrated, with appropriate anatomical drawings and radiographic images. The flow diagrams are particularly helpful in illustrating the workup decision process in several of the chapters....The text accomplishes its goal of providing a quick, up-to-date reference for neurological conditions encountered in daily clinical practice, as implied by its title."-- Journal of Neurosurgery ( Journal of Neurosurgery 2006-10-01)
"A comprehensive multiauthored textbook of neurological disorders, with an emphasis on evaluation and management.
"This 43-chapter single-volume paperback represents the entire contents of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, 16th Edition that is pertinent to neurology, including chapters from the Cardinal Manifestations and Presentations of Disease (approach to different symptoms and syndromes) and the Neurologic Disorders (specific diseases) sections. Compared with its parent text, the typeface is larger, the paper is glossier, many of the color illustrations have been further enhanced, and a few chapters have minor additions. This book provides a broad overview with sufficient detail of the diagnostic principles and management of neurological disorders.
"By visually separating the evaluation and treatment portions of each chapter in colored boxes and by incorporating outstanding illustrations, tables, and flow charts, this text is both an enjoyable leisurely read and a good quick reference.
"Recommended Readership: Students, residents, primary care physicians, and other nonneurologists.
