From the book reviews:
“The beginning chronicles the History of Stereotactic Neurosurgery throughout every culture and nation in the world. ... The book if primarily for neurosurgeons. The text is clearly the best that has ever been written for stereotactic surgery.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, August, 2014)
“The main purpose is to address the major advances in this area, particularly related to the technological developments that have been behind the continuous progress in the field in the 60 years since its introduction. Neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiation oncologists, neuro-oncologists, and radiation physicists are the main audience. ... This is a needed update. ... It is well worth its price.” (Celso Agner, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2010)
