This is a textbook for students of neuroanatomy. Although the subtitle indicates that it is intended as a companion text to the "Stereoscopic Atlas of Neuroanatomy," this book can be used independently since sufficient illustrations have been included. The book is clearly written, avoids excessive detail, and contains a number of instructive, original, diagrammatic drawings. Functional aspects are adequately considered. In short, this is a good textbook of neuroanatomy written primarily from a didactic viewpoint.
