Neurology and Clinical Neuroscience

Arch Neurol. 2008;65(10):1392. doi:10.1001/archneur.65.10.1392-a.

According to Prof Schapira's “Preface” statement, Neurology and Clinical Neuroscienceis intended “to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review of Clinical neurology for both experienced practitioners and neurologists-in-training,” and it does exactly that. The book is divided into 20 major sections and 121 chapters. It is compiled by nearly 200 authors who are experts in their fields, under the guidance of 9 associate (or assistant) editors and the main editor, Prof Schapira. It is the most comprehensive 1-volume neurology textbook of its kind in recent years. All areas of neurology are well covered in this textbook. In addition, areas traditionally covered in lesser detail by many other neurology textbooks, such as neurooncology and neurology in general medicine, are covered extensively in this textbook. The illustrations are outstanding with high-quality color, great clarity, and high resolution. The tables are numerous and most are easy to follow. The number of references in each chapter is just right and the end of each chapter has a few references listed separately under “Suggested Reading.” Another important feature is the summary of key points at the end of each chapter in bullet format. Typographic errors are extremely rare in this textbook and the text reads easily with a consistent format from chapter to chapter, despite nearly 200 authors.
