Review:

This book is written succinctly, remains comprehensive in scope, and is exceptionally well organized, easy to read, and well illustrated. This book is similar to Greenberg's Handbook of Neurosurgery in which the essentials are distilled and concisely presented. The anatomy, function (as shown by the clinical examination), and clinical syndromes are described beautifully using a combination of text, schematic illustrations, and photographs of subjects under actual examinations. In summary, this gem of a book provides both the novice and seasoned clinician with a means of rapidly learning and reviewing the essentials of peripheral nerve anatomy and function in an extremely succinct and well-organized form. It is aptly named and its price ($49.95) makes it a bargain. It can be conveniently carried in one's coat or jacket pocket where it deserves to be.--Journal of NeurosurgeryCareful focus to detail and the wealth of information useful for the trainee or for the more experienced clinician wishing a little refreshing of knowledge.--Journal of Hand SurgeryThis book is well organized, user friendly, and is small and light enough to fit into the pocket of a lab coat. The photographs and illustrations help to clearly convey salient concepts. ..An excellent reference.--Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical TherapyA very effective book for the evaluation of nerve deficits associated with trauma. The sequences of examination are given in a well integrated and logical fashion. The photographs of the examination maneuvers are truly instructive, and add up to the best gallery of such illustrations I have seen. ..Recommend[ed]..to anyone learning or teaching the diagnosis of peripheral nerve injuries.--MicrosurgeryHigh-quality illustrations..easy to read through and understand.--Doody's Book Reviews
