This is a great book for anyone going into neuro. Much more advanced reading than needed if neuro is not your specialty. It does seem to make the "scary" topics in neurology seem less intimidating.

This 1600pp-book is a clinically-oriented approach to the major syndromes and diseases of the nervous system. Neurologic examination is not covered. Its overall quality is one the highest. The authors of the 6th edition have placed considerable attention to diseases that traditionally interested child neurologists (developmental neurology, inherited metabolic diseases). The chapters on neurodegeneration and demyelinating diseases are very well written. Cerebrovascular disease is covered in 100 pp. The chapter on peripheral neuropathies does not contain a clinical algorithm for reaching diagnosis in the patient with a neuropathic syndrome - something that almost all neurology textbooks lack. Not particular emphasis has been placed to clinical details of therapy. The practicing neurologist will have to consult another source for that. Chapters are very well balanced, and many cross-references are provided. The authors have also done a good job with the bibliography, providing references to key papers with more detail on each subject dealt.

This is a standard medical textbook written for med students and residents; for laypeople it is not easy reading. However, millions of parents should read it, even if it's difficult.
The human brain is so complex that no two of us have identical capabilities or limitations; but we all have limitations. Most of us are fortunate to have limitations slight enough so that we learn just with the usual help of parents, friends, teachers and community to transcend or work around our limitations and lead full, productive lives as adults. However, a significant fraction of children have limitations severe enough to need extra help. There's where the trouble starts.
The problems usually get noticed in nursery school, kindergarten or first grade. Unfortunately, most such children's problems get pigeonholed into one of a small number of descriptive phrases, such as "hyperactive", "dyslexic", "autistic", "attention deficit disorder", "adacemically challenged", or some such. By and large, these descriptions are usually grossly correct descriptions of observed behavior, but they are frequently incomplete, and distressingly often they are wrong. For example, it is essentially impossible for a neurologist working with a psychiatrist to determine whether a child less than six years old is actually autistic, but four- and five-year olds are routinely labelled "autistic." And once these labels are applied, they tend to stick; this can lead to incomplete help, or help of the wrong kind.
These failures are not the fault of teachers, social workers, psychologists or physicians. They come about because accurate differential diagnosis of the hundreds of different neurological and biochemical problems that can cause behavioral problems is extraordinarily difficult, requiring more extended observation, and in many cases more psychological and neurological testing, than can be made available to all the children with problems. But if the problem is misdiagnosed or incompletely diagnosed, the help that's given to the child is unlikely to be as effective as if an accurate diagnosis were known.
Parents cannot replace professionals, but they can and should supplement professionals in these situations. Parents observe their children in a wider variety of circumstances, and for more of the time, than any professional can hope to do. By propiding accurate descriptions of the variations in a child's behavior depending on the circumstances in which the child is placed, parents can greatly assist neurologists and psychologists in making an accurate diagnosis.
But what's relevant? Every professional is used to being deluged with irrelevancies from his or her clients. To be able to provide information that's relevant and helpful, the parents need to have some idea of how the brain works, the ways in which brain function can be impaired, the extent to which children compensate for such impairments on their own, and what behaviors may indicate a problem that falls partly or completely outside the conventional pigeonholes. For parents whose young children are said to have intellectual or emotional problems of any sort, this book is *MUST* reading, even if it takes a year to read it. The basic knowledge of neurology given in this book is enough to let parents decide whether the behaviors they see are fully consistent with the label that's being pinned on the child, or whether further exploration, and perhaps different treatment or assistance, may be called for.
This still leaves the problem of where such parents can go for more advice and help; that I can't provide an answer to. But at least the parents in such cases can search for additional professional advice.
In short, if your young child has a problem in school, read this book, no matter how hard it is or how long it takes you!

This text is not easy to read, but it packs a lot of information. You can almost guarantee that this book will provide useful info on any neurological disease. It is one of the best reference books for general neurology. I also find its end-chapter references to be fairly complete. One criticism is that it does not offer too many tables or illustrations.

This is a very comprehensive book on the subject of neurology. Unfortunately, I was only interested in about 25% of the book's contents---those dealing with mental illness. Maybe I should have bought Neurology for Psychiatrists, but that book is smaller, so this one probably has almost as much psychiatric information anyway. Unlike many of the other reviewers, I actually LIKE the amount of detail in this book, although since I don't have an M.D. or a Ph.D. I could not understand all of it. I did also notice from the other reviews that there is a demand for a for user-friendly book dealing with Neurology, that parents can read to help understand their child's neurological deficits. Well, I have the solution! My book, The Failures of American Medicine (available at Amazon for [price]), contains five chapters on mental illness, and is both technical and relatively easy to read. I hope I have provided an answer for the parents who are struggling to find understandable information.
Mr_TrOlOlO
this is a very good hand book to caried with you to the hospital. this book is recomended to medicine student and doctors and specialist in neurology to.
It gives you a very good information about practical issues in neurology.
instead of that it's a cheap book that any one can buy.

I have been studying for board exam for past couple years and have chance to review this book recently. From first chapter to the last page, you'll find basic principles of general neurology as well as pediatric neurology in well-designed systematic pattern. Clinical approach to signs and symptomatology makes this textbook essential for clinicians. New treatment and diagnostic approach at each chapter also make it a "must" for neurology residents, studying for the board exam. Principles of Neurology is the way how to understand fundemantal of neurology.
