In these days of global Internet access, a printed book must have a very specific purpose to validate its printing. Neurosurgery fills a niche as a consensus curriculum text suitable for medical students, residents, and physicians seeking a succinct, thoughtful, comprehensive, and logical reference. This well-illustrated paperback, a cross between a handbook and a comprehensive text, is a great value published by Springer as part of the European Manual of Medicine series.
