I bought this book for a course at university, so naturally the content of the book was useful for that.

As a standalone book it's also a brilliant read for anyone who wants to learn a bit more about the human brain without getting a medical degree.

The style of text is easily accessible and there is a glossary at the back for words you don't know the meaning of.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Richard Griffiths VINE VOICE on 4 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
I picked this up because it's the text for a Bham University course by Dr Doug Richards in October. Right now I'm halfway through it and have flicked through the rest.

The first three chapters introduces the brain in general and suggests Bear's Neuroscience for further reading on these topics.

The book is mainly devoted to a concise yet thorough overview of brain disorders with accompanying imagery. I would say there's not a word wasted in each chapter and he and his co-authors cover the most pressing and difficult brain disorders of the modern world. The chapter on Altzeimer's illustrates this where the amyloid plaques and neurofibril tangles due to tau protein malformation are discussed. Treatment discussions, prognosis and current hypothesis are handily surveyed however this is aimed at the intelligent newcomer.

Each chapter is written by seperate specialists and is divided into the variety of each disorder type. Brief discussion of signs/symptoms,causes, treatment and prognosis ensue along with relevent statistics and expansion boxes elaborating various points or quite frequently a short case history illustrating the disorder varient in question.

Reasons to get it.
A)Your taking his course :)
B)Your a layman, who wants a decent introduction to brain disorders without loads of window dressing or popularisation and hasn't got hours to learn the basics of one disorder. You get enough in each chapter to know exactly what to look for in terms of more advanced knowledge.

This is a nice start on the subject of neurology
