Clinical Neuropharmacology represents the February 1990 issue of Neurologic Clinics. As with most issues in this series, only selected topics are chosen for review. The volume is not appropriate, therefore, for someone looking for a broad overview of clinical neuropharmacology. Eight chapters are included. The first two, "Basic Principles of Clinical Pharmacology" and "Clinical Trials," provide very good introductory material. The remainder of the chapters address specific neurologic disorders, including Parkinson's disease, hyperkinetic movement disorders, autonomic dysfunction, immune-related neuromuscular diseases, multiple sclerosis, head and face pain, sleep disorders, ischemic cerebrovascular disease, and epilepsy. Most chapters are clinically oriented, providing excellent and timely reviews of current approaches to therapy. The chapter on sleep disorders was disappointing in that it included only a very restricted discussion of sleep problems associated with Alzheimer's disease. This book is recommended for practicing neurologists, residents in training, and those interested in the specific topics covered.
