The authors of this volume, especially Dr. J. Lawrence Pool, have long been known for their interest and enormous experience in the diagnosis and treatment of cerebral aneurysms and arteriovenous anomalies. This volume contains a detailed and critical review of their experience with approximately 131 patients with intracranial aneurysms and a moderate number of arteriovenous anomalies. While this is not an excessively large series, the detail in which it is analyzed makes it one of the more outstanding treatises on this subject. The book begins with two important chapters. One is a review of the current information about cerebral circulation, and the other a review of pathology, etiology, and physiological characteristics of aneurysm. In the chapter on cerebral circulation a detailed analysis of the problem of cerebral vascular spasm is included, a problem which has been of great interest to Dr. Pool for many years. There is an excellent chapter
