Reviews

“It is well structured with bite-size sections allowing one to dip in easily for reference. It is well illustrated with photographs, tables and diagrams. Each chapter ends with a brief summary and list of suggested further reading. There are sections on neuroanatomy, the specific investigations and assessments in this field and summaries of the various neurological disorders. The book ends with appendices describing the common drugs used, further information websites and a glossary. Overall an interesting read for any mental health nurse, certainly a book to get your hospital library to stock. “
