"Seldom published is a volume as remarkable as Cerebral Vasospasm. ...It provides a comprehensive review of the topic from what seems to me to be every conceivable angle. ...The wisdom of the authors is truly profound and they share it generously with the reader. ...Its in-depth treatment of all aspects of cerebral vasospasm, coupled with a relatively reasonable price, make it a must-have for anybody involved in the investigation, be it clinical or laboratory, of this interesting problem."
--Ian B. Ross, University of Neurosurgeons, in the JOURNAL OF NEUROSURGERY (February 2002)

"This book has an easy to follow format and is accessible to those reviewing it as a comprehensive reference. The book will be useful to physiologists, residents, neurologists and neurosurgeons. ...This is a welcome, comprehensive review of the basic clinical aspects of cerebral vasospasm. It will be a standard by which all future books on cerebral vasospasm will be judged. There are no current references like this book."
