This review refers to the fourth edition published in 2004
William Holmes: Fourth year medical student: University of Glasgow. Scotland. UK
Neurology is a horrible subject to the medical student. A plethora of nerve pathways and a multitude of pathologies mean that students, when confronted with a neurological patient in the clinical setting, quickly reverse and run back up to the relative safety of cafeteria.
What this books attempts successfully to do, is to remove the teaching barriers of neurology, making neurology not a matter of guess work but reasoning from a solid background of neurological principles. This book achieves this by removing itself from complex diagrams and ancient terms, instead adopting an approach that at first glance seems rather basic. Its layout involves a multitude of illustrations ranging from the simple to the more complex that are not used to complicate, but to provide valuable aids in memorising ultimately making learning the complexities of neurology much easier. The diagrams are all aided by text that is written in note-form, keeping only to the pertinent points and saving the reader valuable time trudging through unnecessary prose.
A prime example of this is seen in the "limb weakness" section. Rather than attempting to narrate what occurs when a lesion is proximal or distal - a fault of mainly neurology books - this book adopts simplified diagrams to convey the points that are relevant and vital. Also, clinical features of a condition are kept to only those that are classical to that pathology and more importantly, they are all explained with relation to the pathology. Together it means the important clinical features are remembered and can be reasoned in-front of a belligerent consultant (much to their annoyance).

I really recommend this book to all medical students, especially those with a visual memory (like me). The use of well thought out line drawings, diagrams and images throughout the book really aids recall, just when you need it.

An excellent text. Especially useful for medical students, HOs and SHOs interested in the field. Surgery is particularly well covered with a good deal of emphasis placed on surgical emergencies that it should be the duty of any junior grade doctor to know about. The section on head injury is particularly well explained. In these days where turning to texts is really only a quarter of the reading on a topic and most of the really up-to-date information can only be gleaned by trawling through medline, it is encouraging to see a text looking forward and including techniques such as surgery for PD which perhaps are not considered the norm in the general medical school curriculum. Almost full marks - the text can get a little dry and insomnia is not usually a problem. Hence 4 stars when otherwise 5 would have been indicated.

A very clear book, which covers pretty much everything you need in medical school. The images are detailed and are treated as part of the text, so that they really add to the comprehension. There is the odd point which is not very precise, although not at a level that matters for Finals.

This book is ideal for an overview of neurology. It is easy to read and understand. Basic terms are well explained. It will undoubtedly lack detail but for undergraduate medicine I think this is a very useful book.

I have always wanted a Neurology book that could explain all the neurological examinations and neurological diseases.
I have already bought at least 6-7 books to find the perfect one when I came across this book.
Very nice pictures in the book and detailed explanations but still remains concise.
I would recommend it to anyone who finds neurology difficult to understand and learn. I am studying for my MRCP and it is one of the best books I have ever learnt from.
Very quick delivery

I think this is probably the greatest book ever written. I don't mean the greatest textbook of neurology ever written, I mean the greatest academic, and, let's be frank about it, literary work ever crafted by mankind. The main characters seem to suffer a lot of adversity, mainly in the form of diseases of the brain and nerves, which are largely depicted with the help of fantastic pictures, and the authors have outlined the pathology, presentation, management etc. of each disease so clearly that this textbook is amazingly useful and enjoyable to peruse and read.
