"This is an enjoyable book that captures the full bench-to-bedside story for vagal nerve and other electrical stimulation applications. ... Given the extremely rapid pace of development in this field, even if some of the pilot trial results become obsolete, these anatomical and physiology reviews will continue to offer a useful starting point for clinicians and scientists. As a neuroscientist-neurologist, I anticipate referring to it frequently." (Mijail Serruya, Doody's Book Reviews, October, 2017)
