Book Reviews

If I hadn't been sent this book to review, I would have almost certainly bought it. That's how good it is. BMA Awards 2005

[This] textbook provides a simple framework for how to perform a straightforward neurological examination up to house officer level. the book is well set out in concise chapters, with useful and easy to understand diagrams to back up the text. There is also a useful chapter on how to pass neurological examinations at finals level. Very useful as a reference text for third years and upwards. 3rd Year Medical Student, Sphincter - Liverpool Medical Magazine, November 2004

There are few books which are recommended student to student by word of mouth. This is one of those few books. This book not only provides clear, step by step instruction on how to examine, but also provides some information on what the findings could mean. The text is clearly and concisely written. It is brilliantly organised into sub-headings, bold-lettering and bullet points, making it easy to find the information you are looking for, and fast! Medical Student, GKT Gazette, June 2004
