Management of Stroke: A Practical Guide for the Prevention, Evaluation, and Treatment of Acute Strokeis a clinically based pocketbook intended to assist physicians and other health care providers in their daily management of stroke patients. Since publication of the first edition almost a decade ago, the specialty has rapidly evolved and a plethora of stroke handbooks have proliferated. The book has adapted to the fast pace of acute stroke care in 2008, providing quick tables that can be easily thumbed at the bedside. One wonders, however, whether the extensive references that accompany each chapter are worth the extra weight in this pocketbook, especially given the widespread access to electronic media that enables today's physicians to readily peruse the medical literature.
