For a relatively friendly, relatively readable-all-the-way through
overview, try _The Human Nervous System: An Anatomical Viewpoint_, by
Murray L. Barr and John A. Kiernan.
When you're ready to dive in deeper, try _Human Neuroanatomy_ (the
approximately 800-page version) by Malcolm Carpenter and Jerome Sutin.
And as a companion to these, consider _Neuroanatomy and the Neurologic
Exam: A Thesaurus of Synonyms, Similar-Sounding Non-Synonyms, and
Terms of Variable Meaning_, by Terence R. Anthoney. This is a
superbly written, compulsively detailed catalogue of places where
standard texts of neuroanatomy contradict each other and themselves.
