I was struck at the outset by the incongruous title of this textbook and prior to reading it at any depth scanned its contents and index for information and themes that would reconcile focus on the disparate topics of stroke and Alzheimer disease in the same discussion. It seems to me a much more logical and appealing title would be Stroke and Dementia, particularly given the controversy and evolution of thought about the association of stroke and dementia in the past decade. Early and later chapters of the textbook do indeed attend to these broader topics.
