About the Author
Hal Blumenfeld is Professor in the Departments of Neurology, Neurobiology, and Neurosurgery at Yale University School of Medicine. He has taught neuroanatomy at Harvard, Yale, and Columbia Universities using the approach of Neuroanatomy through Clinical Cases, which the students greeted with highly favorable feedback. He recently received the prestigious Francis Gilman Blake Award, as the most outstanding teacher of medical sciences at the Yale School of Medicine, and the Dreifuss-Penry Epilepsy Research Award from the American Academy of Neurology. He has also been awarded several major grants (from the National Institutes of Health, and private foundations) to pursue his research, which focuses on epilepsy as a model system for investigating consciousness. Current projects include neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and behavioral experiments in animal models of epilepsy, and direct application to human patients.

At least that is what I found.
The drawings are excellent however and the chapter on the Neurological exam is very clear and practical. Very easy to learn from.
The only drawbacks to this book is the paper and binding. It's a softback and thinner paper. This makes it less practical than a hard back would be-espectially if your a student carrying this in a bag of some kind. I think it would be easily damaged.
If you are the sort of learner that enjoys something like House (medical TV series if you don't know it) and likes trying to second guess what they'll come up with, then this book caters for you.
However, it does expect you'll put quite a bit of background knowledge together to figure out the correct diagnosis.
I would supplement this with Draw It to Know ItNeuroanatomy: Draw It to Know It . Between the two you could get a good start on neurological thinking and general structures. Adding a Netter's Concise Neuroanatomy to this would be of genuinely useful reference benefit.
I'd agree with previous comments about the dubious quality of the binding of a large paperback book and would suggest that the publishers rethink this for future editions, although I haven't lost any pages yet...
Overall I couldn't recommend a better book for getting through neuroanatomy at medical school.
