In my review of the first edition of this book in 1999, I observed that
my skepticism about the need for a new neurology textbook evaporated when
I read the text and accompanying CD-ROM. I complimented the authors for writing
authoritative chapters and the editors for the organization of the book and
the consistency of the writing. I especially liked the CD-ROM, with its useful
features of efficient navigation, video clips, question-and-answer sections
after each chapter, and rapid cross-referencing. I concluded that it would
quickly earn a place in the pantheon of neurology textbooks and would be published
in many future editions.
