Both the neurological neophyte as well as those well acquainted with cerebrovascular disease will welcome the arrival of A Colour Atlas of Stroke: Cerebrovascular Disease and Its Management by Asif Kamal. Published by Wolfe Medical Publications Ltd, Ipswich, England, this splendid volume is a valuable contribution to the neurological and rehabilitation literature.

Unique in style, this atlas, which spans 220 visually pleasing pages, is comprised of a collection of 470 logically sequenced captioned color photographs and diagrammatic representations highlighting the prevention, diagnosis, and rehabilitation of stroke. The photographs are supplemented by clinically relevant textual discussions providing the reader with a clear and concise description of cerebrovascular accident and its management. One notable example is its discussion of complications following stroke, in which graphic photos portraying important clinical entities such as pressure sores, spasticity, contractures, and deep-vein thrombosis are supported by text detailing specific preventive strategies.

Conveniently divided into 14 chapters,
