edited by Jasper Daube, MD, 649 pp, with illus, $125, ISBN 0-19-514080-X, New York, NY, Oxford Press, 2003.

This text contains in 1 volume an overview of the technical field of clinical neurophysiology, including electroencephalography, electromyography, sleep, evoked potentials, intraoperative monitoring, autonomic testing, quantitative sensory testing, and electronystagmography. All 28 authors are from the Mayo Clinic. Despite the number of contributors, there is a feel of homogeneity to the chapters. All of them are clearly written and have the spare conciseness of language required to communicate so much information in the small-book format dictated by the Oxford Contemporary Neurology series. There are hundreds of figures, mostly well produced, although the electroencephalographic tracings are sometimes too small to analyze carefully. This book covers the electrical diagnosis of many neurological disorders but does not have the room to include the clinical features of those disorders or their treatment. Clinical correlation with the neurophysiological tests is also underdeveloped.
