A particular pleasure for clinicians is the inclusion of a section on possible therapeutic interventions in each of the designated chapters, as well as a clinical vignette whenever relevant. A case in point is that of Spyder Cystkopf, a 65-year-old historically docile man who strangled his wife in a domestic dispute and then threw her body from their 12th-floor apartment window in an attempt at disguising her death as a suicide. He was eventually able to describe his involvement in the incident accurately and in detail, but without apparent emotion. In the course of an extensive neuropsychological, neurophysiological, and neuroimaging workup, he was found to have an arachnoid cyst that occupied most of the left middle fossa. How the legal system responded and what happened to Mr. Cystkopf are unfortunately left unaddressed, but the complexities of cause and effect and of free will and determinism are not. One disappointment is the relative absence of neurochemistry in the discussion of circuits and lesions; neurogenetic disorders that have uniquely intriguing behavioral phenotypes, such as velocardiofacial syndrome, are also missing. What remains, however, is valuable enough in its own right, a book that Wilder Penfield or MacDonald Critchley would have been keen to contribute to and that any psychiatrist should have.
