"Dr Manji and co-authors have put together an excellent summary and guide to neurology, which is both aimed at symptomatic presentation, and disease-based. The book is excellently written, packed with wise clinical points and covers a wide differential diagnostic base... it covers so much but in such a short volume. I would recommend it to senior and junior colleages and I found reviewing it highly educational (it now lives in my briefcase)... a considerable achievement and well worth the modest price." - British Journal of Hospital Medicine
"This book will rightly become a staple for those in speciality neuroscience posts, whilst serving clinical medical students and those in their early postgraduate employment equally well.
There is just the right level of information to grasp the fundamentals of any disease entity new to the reader, and to refresh those inevitable lacunes in the ever-expanding knowledge base. For those at Consultant level this book will still remain a ready and useful source of information in the clinic." - Dr Martin R Turner, John Radcliffe Hospital
"As a medical student, I found this book extremely useful throughout my neurology block. Fits into my bag easily, so can just open and read it on the bus. Someone who is a expert in the area may (though I don't know) find fault, but at my level it gives me what I need at the moment." - Amazon Customer Reviews
