"Unlike many handbooks its content is not dry and it is up to date and exceptionally readable The authors managed to convey complex information about stroke and its management in a digestible yet comprehensive format. Putting the information in a historical perspective often with reference to personal experience and some humor gives the reader a sense of the personal touch and makes the reading more enjoyable and even entertaining Another important feature is the truly encyclopedic coverage of the topics. An exceptionally detailed index helps the reader navigate through the book. I highly recommend this encyclopedic stroke textbook to all medical students physicians clinicians and academicians interested in stroke or working with patients with stroke and their families For all of these readers this is truly a 'must have' table book." (Journal of the American Medical Association, November 2008)

"All the chapters are excellent, but the nearly 100-page chapter on the general management of stroke is a masterpiece, dealing at the highest scientific level with daily practical problems that are often neglected in other books." (New England Journal of Medicine)
