Reviews

"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) "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)
