During the years of training and beyond, I have read, or at least perused, a number of texts spanning the width and breadth of neurology; however, I do not recall reading a specific book dedicated to neurologic emergencies. Usually this topic was relegated to a single chapter or sporadically referred to in various texts. The majority of knowledge gained on this subject was hard-won in the emergency departments, units, and wards and passed down from colleagues with greater levels of experience. In reading Neurologic Emergencies, I found a didactic summation covering much of what had previously been ingrained by experience, presented in a concise and logical fashion.
