  • "This book is very well written and explains concepts extremely well. The section on anatomy is particularly detailed, more than available in any other mainstream neuroradiology textbooks...It is also well supported by high quality images and illustrations, both radiological and histological...It imparts detailed knowledge of basic concepts and the required core fundamentals in neuroradiology that are not available in the modern textbooks. It stimulates one to appreciate  this specialist  subject and creates a hunger for more. With the basics mastered, one can then enjoy all the challenging puzzles of neuroradiology that nature throws at us. This book is  suitable for everyone involved in radiology, whether one is a trainee or a consultant, as it provides a foundation in understanding the brain. Once started, you will find it hard to stop as it is very readable and digestible. To this end, the authors have succ eded in achieving their set goal."
