“This neuroanatomy book is a must have when studying a neurology module. Its illustrations and diagrams are a great help in understanding a somewhat complex topic. It's coherently written and pitched at the right level, which makes it an easy read and light work on the eyes when cramming! It's difficult to pick out a best chapter, as all are extremely good and highly relevant.”

This is a short highly illustrated textbook of neuroanatomy that throughout makes clear the relevance of the anatomy to clinical neurology. It avoids overburdening the reader with topographical detail that is unnecessary for the medical student. Minimum assumptions are made of existing knowledge of the subject.
