When I first saw the third edition of Stroke: Practical Management by Warlow et al, I thought it would take me months to review it. However, I actually read it “in one breath.” Unlike many handbooks, its content is not dry, and it is up-to-date and exceptionally readable. The authors managed to convey complex information about stroke and its management in a digestible yet comprehensive format. Putting the information in a historical perspective, often with reference to personal experience and some humor, gives the reader a sense of the personal touch and makes the reading more enjoyable and even entertaining. Another important feature is the truly encyclopedic coverage of the topics. In this respect, the title seems too focused and does not reflect the book's comprehensiveness, which ranges from the development of knowledge and pathophysiology of cerebrovascular disease to the diagnosis, prevention, evidence-based management, and reduction of the public health impact of various types of cerebrovascular disease. All these aspects of stroke are covered in impressive depth, richly illustrated, and thoroughly referenced. A exceptionally detailed index helps the reader navigate through the book.
