    There are now too many neurology textbooks available with little to choose between them. Hardly a publishing house does not have one! However, this is a reference text with a difference since it is also a colour atlas. There are excellent illustrations on virtually every page. Its only rival is Parson’s colour atlas which is less comprehensive. This book is aimed at medical students and MRCP candidates. It is too detailed for medical students. MRCP candidates whom I showed it to liked its concise detail but felt that it could be improved with more emphasis on practical approach and differential diagnosis. It is well written with good summary lists and is a welcome addition despite the existing choice of neurology textbooks. It is reasonably priced and would be very useful to illustrate teaching sessions!
