Review quote

"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) Reviews of the first edition "This is a comprehensive review of virtually all clinically important aspects of stroke and cerebrovascular disease...I highly recommend this book..." (Archives of Neurology) "...this is medical book of the year (or even decade), you should buy two copies and give one to your mum..." (JNNP) "'Must reading' for any physician who treats patients with stroke, it presents a unique blend of academic and clinical perspectives. I highly recommend it..." (Mayo Clinic Proceedings) "...a remarkable piece of work...The book is written in a brilliant didactic form..." (Gerontology)

Back cover copy

In the third edition of this successful book, the authors have again worked closely together as a team to produce a seamless and consistently styled account of the diagnosis and management of stroke. This essential text presents a unique approach to stroke, both from the uniformity and clarity of the style and the integrated clinical management that weaves together causation, presentation, diagnosis, management and rehabilitation.The approach throughout the book is that clinical management should be based on evidence wherever possible. This book deliberately poses and answers many of the burning questions and controversies in stroke and achieves a rare combination of readability and broad coverage.The third edition has been extensively revised and expanded to present an authoritative reference for all professionals involved in stroke care. New features to the third edition include: increased coverage of the statins due to clearer evidence of their effectiveness in preventing strokeimportant new evidence on the preventive effect of lowering blood pressurea completely revised section on imaging, to reflect the great advances in this areacoverage of new advances in interventional radiology.
