Ready Reference for Neurological Disorders


Many patrons come to the public library to find information on recently diagnosed conditions for themselves or those they care for. Oftentimes, it is difficult for librarians to know where to find comprehensive information on these disorders and conditions. One resource I have found helpful for neurological disorders and their treatments is The Gale Encyclopedia of Neurological Disorders, Second Edition, Narins, Brigham, Ed., Gale Cengage Learning. This two volume set was published in 2012 and is fairly easy to use and comprehensive on the topics that it does cover.

The purpose of this two volume set is to educate consumers with neurological disorders on their conditions. It is not meant to replace a physician’s consultation, but to augment the information provided. Information on disorders and diseases, drugs used to treat them, and prognosis are covered in close to four hundred different topics written by an international set of clinicians, academics, and health writers.

Topics are listed alphabetically and include disorders, diseases, and treatment options. Those with names that have changed are indicated in red. Key terms used in each article are defined at the essay’s conclusion to help reader comprehension. Resources for further reading including books, periodicals, organizations and helpful websites are also listed. Helpful and varied graphics and photographs are interspersed throughout the set from acupuncture points throughout the body to a patient receiving a CT scan. The index and glossary are located in the second volume. Entries are also annotated on the outer corners of each page making it easy to flip through and find entries.

VERDICT: This is an informative set for those readers seeking a better understanding of complex conditions and their treatments. For libraries where patrons are looking for a complete continuum of information after diagnosis (prognosis, treatment plans, medications and medical equipment or alternatives to medicine) this is a great addition to any ready reference collection.

NOTE: I was provided these books for free and receive no compensation for my reviews.
