This title's practical and applicable information makes it a perfect clinical resource for the practicing neurologist. While it is not a case-based text - it focuses more on common problems and chronic problems that require long-term management - it provides guidelines and pathways through the decision-making process that prove invaluable in practice. With an expanded section on multiple sclerosis, updated and revised information in nearly every section, and decision-approach summary tables at the beginning of every chapter, the second edition promises to stay in the limelight as the definitive text for outpatient neurologists and internists.
