Editorial Reviews

"Overall, the authors succeeded very well in condensing a huge amount of information into a hands-on textbook in a rather comprehensive yet still personal way. We recommend it as a basic reference for any (busy or not busy) physician taking care of stroke patients."--European Neurology, Vol.49, No 3, 2003
