Reviews

"An intriguing title to an atypical textbook of neurology. The usual, repetitive, and often boring contributions of standard text-books have happily been omitted, with the result of a rather fresh and stimulating look of most chapters." (Eur Neurol, 8 February 2011)

"This outstanding book is a unique opportunity for neurologists (and family doctors) around the world to have an excellent overview of their specialty." ("The Lancet," March 2010)
