Editorial Reviews

"The usefulness of the book's uniform chapter format such as this allows an individual to pick up the book as a quick reference. This is a very personal and useful book - the product of an experienced brain tumour dedicated multi-disciplinary team. I think this text book provides a goodhistorical overview and broad perspective of the treatment of brain tumours in the last two decades of the 20th Century." -- James R. Perry, Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences, Vol 27, No. 4, Nov 2000
