This book is a very nice review of spinal cord injury, including sections on anatomy, pathology, diagnosis, imaging, and treatment. There are 16 chapters representing the work of 35 contributors. In the preface, the authors note that space limitations preclude coverage of some important areas, specifically citing the omission of spasticity and evoked potentials. Interestingly, there is an informative chapter by Dr Aminoff on segmentally specific somatosensory evoked potentials, which he concludes are of little use in the clinical management of spinal cord disorders. Perhaps one of the excluded topics could have been substituted in its place. There are two excellent reviews of nontraumatic spinal cord disorders, and this is material that is often not well covered in textbooks of spinal cord injury. This volume is well illustrated and is recommended for clinicians wishing a current and succinct review of spinal cord disorders.
