"Here is a work that the busy clinical neurologist - practicing or academic - can keep next to her/his two-volume OED, Webster's Unabridged, and Internet access. Aminoff and Daroff - themselves encyclopedic in their knowledge, breadth, and editorial experience - have put together a truly all-encompassing editorial compendium." --NEUROLOGY (October 2003) "This is a must buy for any library. The wonderful quality of the work, added to its well-written text and superb pictures, make this a new masterpiece of neurological sciences." --Doody's (October 2003)
