"I think [the book] is very valuable, and it has benefited from careful editing and good organization. ...The illustrations are excellent â color has been used judiciously and effectively. ...The number of undergraduate neuroscience majors is growing, and a book of this type could be of great value to them. Neurology residents would find it a very quick way to get the background on which to superimpose new findings. ...Overall, I think the book does achieve the goals that Gilman proposed â he and his colleagues are to be congratulated." -Guy McKhann, MD, Johns Hopkins University in the NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE, May 30, 2007
