Reviews
Review Quotes
Neurology -- Praise for the previous edition: "This book is the third edition of a classic but contemporary reference on neurointensive care that has acted as a cornerstone of the field, if it has not defined it, for a decade....It is one of the few books that should likely be considered mandatory reading for all neurology and neurosurgery officers, if not their faculty educators as well."--Neurology
From a review of the previous edition: "This book is the third edition of a classic but contemporary reference on neurointensive care that has acted as a cornerstone of the field, if it has not defined it, for a decade.... It is one of the few books that should likely be considered mandatory reading for all neurology and neurosurgery officers, if not their faculty educators as well." Neurology

The authors, from leading neuro-intensive care units, have written the book collectively, giving it more cohesiveness and more of an authoritative consensus voice than previous multiauthored editions.
