Books & Journals
05 November 2004
Neurology has a large number of books and journals being added
every year - whether neurologists read more than other medical
specialists or just like collecting books for their library is
a moot question! In any event the resident is faced with a
multitude of books from which to choose.
The following is a listing that will grow with time. The
comments are not unbiased since they represent the views of a
single person. You are welcome to email your opinions as well
as titles for addition to the list.
On-call books (easily carried in the coat pocket)

written, but massive.
