What should be found in a book entitled Behavioral Neurology? Everyone, it would seem, has his or her own "behavioral neurology." For the record, let me state that this book—excellent though it may be in many ways—does not represent mine. Lots of other people must find it serving their needs, however, since it has now appeared in its fourth edition. For my part, a more fitting title would be A Brief Introduction to Neuropsychiatry. What are the strengths of this book that render it so popular, and why am I making such a fuss about labels?
