Published Reviews

    "Authoritative, eminently readable, and current."-Journal of Neurosurgery

    "[F]or depth of coverage of individual subjects and as a reference for cerebrovascular diseases, [Stroke] has become the standard."-Annals of Internal Medicine

    "Should be part of the libraries of all [those] who deal with cerebrovascular disease." -JAMA
    "Updating such a big reference work is a huge task, and by and large the editors have succeeded in their task. They have assembled many very distinguished authors and put together a pretty comprehensive reference work."
    -Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery and Psychiatry

    Reviews of previous edition.
    "There are sections on pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical manifestation and individual sections dealing with specific pathological conditions explaining each in great depth. In addition, it has extensive sections devoted to therapy including medical, interventional and surgical . All this makes the book a one-stop-shop for stroke. As a result, it is a work that will prove valuable to a wide range of clinicians involved with providing stroke services, including stroke physicians, acute care physicians, researchers, public health physicians and those involved with rehabilitation medicine...In comparison to the previous editions, the book has definite a advantages in the form of picture quality and web access. It is excellent value for the price as a reference book for stroke, not radiology specific. The book would find its place in a departmental radiology library. Overall, an excellent, up-to-date reference volume."
