"Now in its eighth edition, this is a good, single-volume book for psychiatrists who need to improve their familiarity with neurological diseases. It is justifiably a classic for review for neurological material on the boards." Reviewed by Eric Gausche, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
