"I would recommend this book without reservation and over other neuroanatomy books. The greatest strength is its beauty. Neuroanatomy can be tough. The drawings provide perspectives that are rarely seen in other textbooks and can make concepts click in your mind - a picture is worth a thousand words. The text is cleverly used to highlight rather than provide a detailed explanation - which can be referenced from other books. The initial overview and then diving down into the nitty-gritty significantly aids learning as it provides a contextual road-map. The influence of the educationalist is clearly felt alongside the expertise of the anatomists. They have done Netter justice. This is an exceptional book, now in its third edition. An established gem. Well worth shortlisting. The electronic version is very welcome and makes a chunky tone accessible anywhere with the added. video bonus. This is a standard publishers should be aiming for."
