    Clinical neuroanatomy. An illustrated review with questions and explanations, 3rd edition. By richard s snell (Pp 256, £19.95). Published by Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, Baltimore, 2001. ISBN 0 7817 2989 0.

    This text recycles information and illustrations from his larger textbook in a form designed for rapid revision and as a reminder of forgotten neuroanatomy for clinical attachments and recent graduates. Use of clinical notes and review questions parallels the larger text, though the chapter organisation is somewhat different. The factual content has been reduced in length, often to sequences of short statements closer to lists than to explanation. The quality of illustration is also considerably reduced by exclusion of colour.

    The result is about half the length of the main text and two thirds of the price. It is hard to imagine why a student or junior doctor who has used the larger book or some other clinical anatomy text would wish to buy this considerably inferior product, still far too large to provide headlines for storage in short term memory.
