It was highly enjoyable to read Bullets and Brains, which is a collection of 103 essays originally published by Andrew Nathan Wilner on Medscape.com, a division of WebMD geared toward health care professionals. These essays were released between 2009 and 2013 (with a short update being provided for many of the older essays in this edition), primarily as part of the author’s recurring columns “Wilner on Neurology” and “Epilepsy Notes.” The whole book covers a broad range of clinical and scientific neurological topics, featuring sections on traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer disease, stroke, recent prevention and treatment guidelines, and physician practice issues, as well as assorted chapters on delirium, the history of neurology, and, as an example of the partially uncommon content that some of the essays are based on, the influence of microgravity on intracranial pressure. However, the vast majority of the essays (ie, chapters) are dedicated to epilepsy, Dr Wilner’s main area of interest; he completed an epilepsy fellowship at the Montreal Neurological Institute in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and is the former author of 2 books on epilepsy.
