The third edition of this two-volume text has two new editors (Goadsby and McArthur) and 216 eminent contributors. More than three quarters of the contributors, who are mainly from the United States and United Kingdom, are new to this edition. The book's purpose is "to focus on the mechanisms of neurological disease and the principles that form the basis for management and therapeutics." The book is attractively and extensively formatted and illustrated with 200 line diagrams, 200 halftones, 25 color plates, 50 figures, and 350 tables. Table 1 compares this edition with the prior ones.
