"Overall, the book is relatively concise, well-written, and up-to-date. ...the text was enjoyable to read and provided a clear overview of a very complicated area of neuroscience. The price is appropriate for such an authoritative text, and I would highly recommend the book for those interested in CNS regeneration and repair, a field that will have significant impact on the treatment of neurosurgical patients in the near future." —Gregory Helm, University of Virginia Health Systems, in JOURNAL OF NEUROSURGERY (December 2001)
