The arrival of a new volume of this classic is an exciting event for a neuroophthalmologist. This time, the topic is vascular diseases; not only strokes ordinaire, but also vasculitis, migraine, arteriovenous fistulas, and aneurysms. These disorders are encountered often enough in ophthalmic practice to be of interest to all ophthalmologists.
I decided to "road test" the latest volume in my office. We used it as an online source for information about vascular disorders that were encountered in the neuro-ophthalmology unit in one week. Everything that we required was readily available, lavishly illustrated, well referenced (including citations from the 1990 literature), and clearly written. Controversial issues were presented with appropriate balance and emphasis. We found the long section addressing the management of strokes and transient ischemic attacks especially valuable.
"... a new volume of this classic is an exciting event."
One cannot complete a fair review without reading the whole book,
