This outstanding text will continue to be a key resource for neurologists and neurosurgeons, as well as resident trainees in those disciplines.

4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This book should be an essential element in the library of both young and seasoned clinicians....This has always been a successfully balanced textbook, combining a personal approach to the study of neurology and neurologic diseases. This edition, now1572 pages, expands on the prior editions admirably. It achieves the difficult task of refreshing and updating a classic."--Doody's Review Service

"one of theiconic texts in clinical medicine. The fact that it is now inits ninth edition attests to its durability and credibility asa comprehensive source for the pathophysiology, evaluation, andtreatment of disorders of the nervous system. First published in 1975, it has withstood the enormous changes in neurologicalsciences during the subsequent decades and has remained astaple on the reference shelves of practitioners from a variety ofbackgrounds and training levels....A unique attribute for a volume of this size is that each chapter iswritten by the same authors, thus achieving a uniformity of voice....As a gold standard text, the ninth edition of Adams and Victor’sPrinciples of Neurology would serve as valuable complement toany medical library."--World Neurosurgery Journal

Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology provides all the information you will need to confidently handle any neurologic problem, from disorders of motility, and derangements of intellect, behavior, and language, to the degenerative and neuromuscular diseases. Having this gold standard text on your reference shelf is like being able to consult with skilled clinicians on a daily basis. More than a compilation of facts, Adams and Victor's delivers expert insights not found in any other resource that help you understand every aspect of neurological disease.

Written in a conversational style, the text offers practical, yet in-depth, coverage of both common and rare illnesses. Adams and Victor's Principles of Neurology also includes timely, complete, and accessible treatment and clinical management strategies.

Review:

"...text remains most pleasant to read and has maintained its lucent and elegant style." "Adams and Victor's book ranks first among textbooks in neurology on account of its didactics." "...the book remarkable when compared with other similar texts." "The seventh edition of Adams and Victor's textbook remains a first-class book for residents training in neurology, but is no less valuable for senior neurologists. It is also a perfect reference for other medical specialists and psychologists. Non-neurologists will easily find answers to their questions, with an appropriate amount of detail. The cliche that everyone should purchase this book or that it belongs in any neurological library is redundant and out of tune here. One can certainly live without this book, but medical life is far more pleasant with a copy within reach." Lancet 20011006
