Review quote

"This is an outstanding book; little of significance is omitted, and yet one is not overwhelmed with details. No doubt with the trainee entering the field in mind, it is particularly good when reviewing the literature ... It will prove to be a useful reference text for more senior neurologists confronted with a difficult patient, both for diagnostic and therapeutic options." Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatryshow more
