"This book can be strongly recommended for the chapters on intracranial assessment technologies. Chapters integrating brain response to other organ systems, however, are at best incomplete. Summaries of monitors for other organ systems are an unrealistic expansion of the scope of this book. I would keep this book for my neuroscience bookshelf."-David Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School) Doody Review: 87/100
