That anonymous quote, which became the dictum of my clinical training, succinctly captures the essence of an education in clinical neurology. The bedside examination and recognition of clinical signs are essential skills for any neurologist; missing subtle signs may lead to a delay in diagnosis or, worse, a misdiagnosis. Therefore, a vital skill for students and residents to master is the ability to detect and interpret neurologic clinical signs.

Pictures and videos are invaluable tools that help students, residents, and practicing neurologists understand and remember the phenomenology of neurologic disorders and their radiologic appearance. When it comes to neuroradiology and clinical signs, visual aids are superior and more effective modes of communication than words. With plenty of pictures and more than a hundred videos, Practical Neurology Visual Review is a concise but highly effective resource to help medical students and neurology residents learn bedside neurology skills, as well as how to recognize important neuroimaging signs. Moreover, the second edition of Practical Neurology Visual Review gets rid of the antiquated DVD (which requires access to a computer) and, instead, incorporates quick response codes for readers to access the many videos that accompany this wonderful little book. With almost everyone owning a smartphone, this allows quick and convenient viewing of these videos. As a vestibular neurology and neuro-ophthalmology fellow, I found the videos of ataxia, neuro-otology, and neuro-ophthalmology to be instructive and quite useful in helping students and residents understand the clinical features of these disorders.
