I have so many neurology books, but this one is unique. It is delightful and I've shown the book to professionals of all fields who also find it fascinating. It is targeted to the general audience and it is a magical book. In the book, you experience the nervous system as a thing of beauty that assembles chemistry, electrical and cellular sciences together in a way that as life itself, shows a glimpse of God's great mysteries. Enlightening!
The history of the histology - pathology - neuro path - was also very easy and great read. I have a lot of respect for the different ideas that past scientist were surmising - and could follow how difficult it was for them to gather the hard proof.
