It is a pleasure to see new neurosurgery books appearing in this era of change in publishing. The delivery of medical and scientific information is undergoing a revolution. Paper-based documents are rapidly being replaced by electronic versions, which can be distributed instantly and widely if needed. A historical change presents itself in that books on the shelves of public and academic libraries are giving way to digital storage and reading devices. This digitizing process seems destined to continue.
