Review quote

"Johnston, Adams, and Fatemi have assembled a superb group of section editors and contributors, who cover neurological disease broadly and deeply. Chapters provide clinical overviews, insights into the neurobiology of the conditions, and treatment considerations. The material is well-organized and abundantly illustrated, with instructive tables. This book will appeal to non-specialist neurologists and non-neurologist readers, but will be equally or more attractive to neurology specialists who want to review areas outside their areas of focus. Despite the current tendency to search for material at the 'bedside, ' there should still be room on the shelf for this text." --Robert A. Gross MD, PhD, FANA, FAAN, Professor of Neurology and of Pharmacology and Physiology, University of Rochester Medical Center, Editor-in-Chief, Neurology Journal.
