"The set’s wealth of information makes compelling reading...Highly recommended." --J. Kushner, James Madison University

"...a good index, a supplementary index of subjects by topic area, and cross-referencing at the end of each entry do help in navigating the contents...a worthwhile investment for departmental, medical school, and public libraries." --AMERICAN NEUROLOGICAL ASSOCIATION (2003)

"Here is a work that the busy clinical neurologis - 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)
