"In conclusion this book fully meets its goals as an educational tool that can be used in a system based approach of neuroanatomy. It is written with great knowledge and understanding of educational principles, clearly reflecting the experience of both authors in this field. It avoids overwhelming the medical students with unnecessary topographic details and had a clear cut approach where only little assumptions are made of existing knowledge of the subject. This book provides good value for money and could be highly recommended to medical students and neurologists in training wanting to review the most important neuroanatomical principles."
