The book broadly divides into two. First, the neuropsychological consequences of lesions to the temporal, frontal, parietal, and occipital lobes are each given a chapter full of detail from lesion studies, clinical case material, and neuroimaging studies. I would single out for particular attention the parietal lobe chapter, written by neurologist Masud Husain. This is as good as anything I have read in much larger and more expensive textbooks and will be my preferred reference for the area. In the second part of the book, cognitive dysfunction in some clearly neurological conditions (Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, motor neuron disease, hydrocephalus, ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm, and tuberose sclerosis) and some perhaps less clearly neurological conditions (schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and autism) are considered. The book works well because although each of the chapters acts as a stand-alone up-to-date review, the comprehensive range of individual chapter subjects gives the volume a reassuring textbook character.
