Neurologists frequently ask neurogeneticists for recommendations for 2 types of books: books detailing recent advances in neurogenetics and books that teach human genetics methodology. Neurogenetics, edited by Dr Pulst, is the best book available that fulfills these requests. This book is a successor to Neurogenetics: Principles & Practice (Roger Rosenberg, Raven Press, 1985); Molecular Genetics in Diseases of Brain, Nerve, and Muscle (edited by Lewis P. Rowland, Donald S. Wood, Eric Schon, and Salvatore DiMauro, Oxford University Press, 1989); and is complementary to The Genetics of Neurological Disorders (Michael Baratser, Oxford University Press, 1997). Neurogenetics is a welcome update to the field.
