Peripheral Neurology was the first book to innovatively utilize case presentations as a vehicle to teach peripheral neurology. In fact, it was the first to categorize the field of peripheral neurology, as most other neurology texts concentrated on diseases of the central nervous system. This case approach has since been emulated in many other texts and on various web sites. Emphasizing the clinical condition rather than electrodiagnostic technique, each topic is thoroughly addressed, first in the Fundamental Concepts of Part I, and then in multiple Case Studies presented in Part II. The reader is able to simulate a true clinical environment where a diagnosis has to be arrived at with no organizational clues from the text. Formulating conclusions by analyzing the history, physical, and laboratory data, and linking from case to related case, this is the only text which allows this type of "interactive" reading. The book addresses many rare entities that the author is able to present based on his 30-years of experience.

Industry Reviews

"...an absolutely unique book...a great contribution to diagnostic, clinical, and academic neurology...[the author's] sense of humor, ability to simplify complicated issues, and strong scientific logic make reading this book pleasant and very useful from an educational standpoint. Rating: *****"--Doody's Health Sciences Book Review From reviews of the previous editions: "It is nice the way the author paints a picture of EMG as an extension of the neurologic history and examination, and the emphasis on principles of neuroanatomy and pathophysiology is valuable. At the same time, the book is almost encyclopedic, with highly detailed listings of differential diagnoses...this book should find a large readership. As the author states in the preface, ' the reader can refer to the cases to study or teach a specific problem, or the book can be used as a programmed study text. [he also states that] this book is a labor of love, and it shows through to the reader."--Neurology, September 1991 "Anyone wishing to acquire practical knowledge of clinical electromyography will benefit from this book. It will be especially useful for practicing electromyographers and those training in EMG. It should be available in the EMG lab where it will be used and appreciated regularly."--Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, November 1991 "Dr. Liveson has referenced his work thoroughly with almost 2000 citations from the literature, a suggested syllabus, an appendix of diagnoses, and a brief index after each patient vignette that identifies related cases. This makes it easy to adapt this book for teaching and self-instruction."--Surgical Neurology, 1991 "This well written book uses case studies for teaching basic clinical electrodiagnostic medicine. Dr. Liveson creates an enjoyable learning process while avoiding particular protocols or methodologies. Inquisitive reasoning and improved bedside decision making are stressed."--American Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, February 1992 "...an absolutely unique book...a great contribution to diagnostic, clinical, and academic neurology...[the author's] sense of humor, ability to simplify complicated issues, and strong scientific logic make reading this book pleasant and very useful from an educational standpoint. Rating:*****"--Doody's Health Sciences Book Review From the Foreword:"Dr. Liveson's realm is Peripheral Neurologic diagnosis, viewed neurophysiologically by the clinician. He brings his delight in teaching to his writing. I commend this third edition, which is broader, up-to-date, and more inclusive than the previous versions. The reader will find it a useful addition to his or her library as a reference and teaching source. The book fills the needs of the electromyographer, providing a practical approach to solve most of the problems commonly encountered in the field of peripheral Neurology."--Jun Kimura, MD, Professor Emeritus, Kyoto University From reviews of the previous editions: "It is nice the way the author paints a picture of EMG as an extension of the neurologic history and examination, and the emphasis on principles of neuroanatomy and pathophysiology is valuable.
