From the reviews of the first edition:
"This comprehensive book by David Schiffer addresses current problems of brain tumour diagnosis that are relevant for neuropathologists, neurosurgeons, radiotherapists and neurooncologists. ... The whole publication contains a lot of histopathological figures, including various immunohistochemical staining examples. ... we believe that this is a nice and well-written book that might be of interest to anybody treating gliomas and meningiomas." (Ulrich Sure and Axel Pagenstecher, Neurosurgical Review, Vol. 30, 2007)
"This monograph by an accomplished neuropathologist is centered largely on contemporary difficulties encountered in the histopathologic diagnosis of brain tumors. ... This readable monograph is highly recommended to surgical pathologists. ... discussions on glioneurogenesis, molecular genetics, growth factors, stem cells, and intracellular signaling mechanisms involved in the neoplastic process, along with extensive bibliographic annotations, should be of great interest and value to students of neuro-oncology." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 28, October, 2007)
