Netter's Neurology, 2nd Edition, by Drs. H. Royden Jones, Jayashri Srinivasan, Gregory J. Allam, and Richard A. Baker, uses visually rich Netter artwork to efficiently provide you with a concise overview of general neurology and its intersection with internal medicine, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, psychiatry, and orthopedics. "It communicates often very difficult areas of neurology quite simply, and builds on basics to advanced understanding. I've never seen such well-thought-out and informative illustrations with such detail in another neurology book of this type." - First Prize Winner, Illustrated Book Category, British Medical Association 2012 Medical Book Competition

Book Reviews

"The illustrations, beautiful in themselves, help to clarify difficult concepts and to correlate the anatomical,

pathological, physiological, pharmacological, and clinical aspects of different disorders. Established neurologists will

admire them, but students and residents will find them most useful as they grapple with the complexities of the subject matter."

Muscle & Nerve, review of previous edition


"Overall, this is an excellent addition to the literature and the text is right up to date."
