The authors' objective was to create a general neurology text larger and more complete than handbooks but smaller and more easily used and read than a work comprising 2 or 3 volumes. In addition, they intended that their treatment recommendations follow evidence-based information from the Cochrane Library and clinical evidence and that their scientific information was as current as possible.
