The content deserves a 5 star, but I gave it 4 stars overall because of a couple shortcomings. The graphics don't convey the 3 dimensionality of the anatomy. All of my anatomy texts do a far better job representing internal structures, and this becomes extremely important.
2nd, there are some areas overemphasized, some omissions, and a problem with the order of presentation. The chapter on attention tells me that one of the authors researches in this area. Sorry, it doesn't warrant a chapter. You know you're on the wrong track when you spend an entire page just explaining the minutiae of a single experiment. Second, there was no mention of intelligence. Yes it's a hotbutton issue. No excuse for ignoring it. Finally, issues were raised, such as fear or emotions, that use the same structure. It would be helpful to discuss the anatomy in more detail early on instead of introducing structures piecemeal.
Overall an excellent book.
There is something to be said for a text that can be read cover to cover, with little strain, and give the reader a clear overview of the field.
The authors have done full justice. Although I am a physician and have about half a dozen books on neuroanatomy, I ordered just because it was so enjoyable to read on "Google review" and "look inside this book". A truly enjoyable and worthy addition to my collection.
I retain things very well if I study them in detail-as if I was discovering them for the first time. Very few books are able to satisfy me that way and this is indeed one of them.
PS: Don't get me wrong: it is NOT a Neuroanatomy text but it certainly will make learning neuroanatomy and physiology and functioning of brain much more enjoyable and easy for the reader.
Despite being easily readable and covering a broad topic, it is considerably deep. Every chapter forms a solid starting point for specialized study of appropriate sub-discipline. After reading this, you can continue with any specialized article or monography without fear of drowning.
