This book emphasizes facts over form, but although I lamented its paucity of pleasurable prose, I must admit that it is a success. The editors and authors have distilled evidence-based stroke management into about 300 pages. Bulleted summaries are provided at the end of each chapter, along with levels and grades of evidence for each bullet. Each chapter also includes an extensive reference list, and several include tables and illustrations. It is unlikely that the editors could distill the material any more and still be able to call this a reference book.
