The first question that came to mind when I saw Hypertension and Stroke was if a book as specific as this one is really needed. To focus at book length on a single risk factor, even for a disease as prevalent and lethal as stroke, seemed too much. It might be more appropriate as another chapter in a general stroke textbook. However, the more I delved into this issue by reading this book, the more I realized the reasoning behind publishing it and appreciated the effort made by the authors.
