I gave it 2 stars for one main reason.

Granted, the Thieme Flexibook "Color Atlas of Neurology", is a little older as far as publication date is concerned; regardless it is definitely a superior book.

Format: Paperback
While written quite nicely, with the content of this book, I can't say that it is at all worth the price, nor time.

It can't be argued that this book covers many of the essential topics, the problem is the level of coverage quite superficial, the layout of topics less than ideal. The diagrams and illustrations, while pertinent, do not exactly compliment the text. What is funny is that some illustrations take up an entire page, and considering the full page coverage of an illustration, one would expect that it will be showing something important; something worth examining. This simply is not the case. It's almost as if the illustrations were placed simply to add page count to the book. As if sentences in the book were chosen at random, and later an illustration was found to match it.

Going back to the depth of coverage. Quite frankly, I find this textbook almost too abbreviated to be of use. Verbosity and grandiose language overpowers what is in fact most important, the topic of clinical neurology. It is neither comprehensive enough, nor condensed and concentrated enough to be of value. The text purveys a sense that it tries to be a jack of all trades, but ultimately, is master of none, as some of the less easily remembered details one would really reference a book to find are not present, leaving the stuff you can find, practically speaking, in textbooks one may already have. If you already have a textbook on internal medicine, like Harrison's or Cecils, etc., you are certainly better off sticking to the neurology sections of those books as you will not gain anything extra from Clinical Neurology in comparison.

I'm a third year medical student and I bought this book as my main resource to prepare for the neurology clerkship shelf exam. It took a long time to get through, and the format takes a awhile to get used to. For each disease topic/chapter there is random babble about history and physical exam, then there is a long differential, followed by the briefest of explanations of each disease in the differential. I would prefer a text that told me everything I need to know about each disease, like say, multiple sclerosis. But in this book you learn that MS can cause seizure in one chapter, vision problems in a another chapter, and corticospinal tract demyelination in another. It is therefore difficult to piece together all the findings when you are presented with a test question having all 3 signs tied into it. When I started doing pretest questions I was completely lost. I don't know what a good neuro book is but this one sure is not. To think it is rated highly in the back of the First Aid for the Wards book, I can't understand why. The neuro section of step up to medicine is pretty good, and the pretest book is as usual quite good. Don;t waste your money on this one, try another.

Format: Paperback
This book tries to be everything for everyone. It tries to cover almost every aspect of neurology from medications to anatomy. Sounds great? Wrong! It ends up being a hodge podge of random ideas that do not flow. Each item is presented in enough detail to confuse you, but not to actually teach you anything. Do your mind a favor, find a better book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was assigned for my neurology rotation. I read a decent amount of the book. That said, I would suggest that students find the previous edition for cheaper. This current edition irritates me for reasons not related to its information regarding clinical neurology.

I gave it 2 stars for one main reason. I feel like the publishers/authors rushed this book to the printers without properly editing it. There are countless typos throughout the book. Bullet points at the beginning of certain chapters aren't even numbered correctly (It goes 1,3,3,4,5..) Then there is a line from the book that reads "for more information please refer to page XXX". The editors failed to replace the XXX with an actual page number. Errors like this are scattered throughout the book.

This book is just unacceptable to me. Textbooks are expensive and they should be quality references.
