From reviews of previous volumes:

"Ranks with the very best previous attempts at codifying neurosurgical operations. The attention to detail is excellent..." -- The New England Journal of Medicine

"A valuable addition to any library...I would recommend it to all neurosurgeons with an interest in cerebrovascular disease...The operative photographs are of extremely high quality." - Chicago Medicine

"This textbook is extremely well indexed, which facilitates its ease of use as a reference. This is a remarkable volume among the definitive atlases in microneurosurgery. This book is valuable to the neurosurgical resident familiarizing oneself with intracranial and spinal anatomy for the first time, but also serves as an excellent reference for the experienced neurosurgeon who wishes to add diversity and depth to his or her own experience in vascular and spinal neurosurgical procedures." -- Journal of Neurosurgery
