Stroke care has been revolutionised by better prevention, treatment, and more widely available rehabilitation. Nonetheless, stroke remains the second most common cause of death worldwide. This fully-updated new edition provides clear facts and practical advice as to why strokes occur and how they can be prevented in the future. Concise in style but comprehensive in approach, Stroke: The Facts describes the myriad of symptoms, varied presentations, and longer-term consequences of this disabling condition. The journey from treatment through to rehabilitation and preventing a further stroke is made easy by the author, a stroke doctor and researcher involved in many of the studies that have advanced care. Supplemented with case studies, this guide concentrates on developments in treatment, providing an important update on the first edition. It is essential reading for those who have had a stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack and their families, and will also be of interest to medical professionals working within stroke care.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition ... an interesting addition to the available material for patient information ... very comprehensive ... useful to anyone wanting to understand a long-term condition - and that would include medical staff. * Pulse GP Magazine *
This isn't a 'soft' book on stroke that holds the hand of the reader from diagnosis to treatment - it's dry, full of medical studies and hits you with the facts. But don't let this put you off. Full of tips on how to recognise stroke and the latest in research into therapies, it's well worth persevering with. * Ros Holness in The Daily Mail *
This engaging little book is highly readable and packed with up-to-date information ... it covers clearly, concisely and quite comprehensively the aspects of risk factor management, causes and pathology of stroke, ... and answers many questions that would benefit the patients themselves. ... It would be an invaluable aid to junior doctors working on a stroke unit, and it clearly deserves a space on the bookshelf. * Diane Ames, Age and Ageing *
