Dr Kaufman's second edition of Clinical Neurology for Psychiatrists deserves the attention of medical students, residents, practicing psychiatrists, and family practitioners. The two major sections of this 431-page text focus on a review of classical anatomic neurology and on major neurologic symptoms. The reader is captured quickly by the easily understood style and succinct reminders of definitions and pathways long ago heard and once learned. The ready informational flow from text to charts to drawings provides the counterpoints of reference so essential to learning the complexities of neurlogic diagnosis. The illustrators, Mr Morden and Ms Mannato, are to be commended for their ability to capture the essence of the varied presentations of individuals with neuropsychiatric disease. The references are very up to date, as are the citations of the classic articles in each area. Clinicians will find the multiple references for patient support groups very helpful.
