Modern Practical Neurology: An Introduction to Diagnosis and Management of Common Neurologic Disorders

Kurt A. Jaeckle, MD
JAMA. 1981;246(24):2862-2863. doi:10.1001/jama.1981.03320240068033.

This reasonably brief neurology textbook has a problem-oriented format with occasional topic-oriented chapters. The book is directed at "medical students, house officers, and physicians who undertake to manage patients with neurological disorders." The text can be read in a short time, which might make it useful for students on brief rotations or for those in other specialties who desire a lucid "core text" of neurology. It will not suffice as a major reference for neurologists, nor was it intended to. Chapters have the continuity associated with single-authored texts. Dr Scheinberg mentions his own anecdotal experience fairly infrequently, instead collating information from the major papers in the literature. References for each chapter are arranged categorically, but statements in the text proper are not cited individually.

The chapter on the neurological examination is brief and should be read in conjunction with similar chapters in larger neurological texts. Cerebrovascular disease is covered nicely
