Written for neurologists and other physicians who participate in the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors, the authors based this book on their individual clinical experiences. The text is practical. The first seven chapters provide a foundation for tumor pathology, biology, radiology, and the treatment modalities of surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Each of the tumor-specific chapters has a common format, reviewing the history, epidemiology, biology,
pathology, clinical symptoms, differential diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis and complications. There is a particular emphasis on treatment in these chapters.

"The usefulness of the book's uniform chapter format such as this allows an individual to pick up the book as a quick reference. This is a very personal and useful book - the product of an experienced brain tumour dedicated multi-disciplinary team. I think this text book provides a good historical overview and broad perspective of the treatment of brain tumours in the last two decades of the 20th Century." -- James R. Perry, Canadian Journal of Neurological
