"The book will be indispensable for anyone involved in the study of brain tumors, especially for neuropathologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, endocrinologists, and radiologists. The editors have gathered well-known experts to author each of the 63 chapters, providing the reader with a comprehensive selection of important issues on all aspects of brain tumors and ensuring that this book will become a classic source of multidisciplinary information.The book is particularly useful as a first source of integrated information for the everyday practice of neuro-oncology." - New England Journal of Medicine, review of the previous edition

"The previous edition was not only updated, but many new chapters along with new authors have been included, all reflecting the continuous change in concepts, technologies, and outcomes in highly recommended not only to neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroscientists but also to all engaged in neurooncology as a standard reference work about all aspects of brain tumors."
