Before the explosion in information technology, publication of a medical text was anticlimactic. The latency between write and read could easily exceed one year, limiting inclusion of the latest diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. The authors and editors of Neurology in Clinical Practice have cleverly harnessed the World Wide Web and produced a parallel work, which includes the entire printed text as well as updates, recently reported discoveries, links to other textbooks, video representations of neurological signs, errata, a daily Neurology Board review question, and, as is customary on the Internet, advertisements for office supplies, books, and whatever else the complete neurologist might wish to purchase.
