The most favorable feature of this book is its broad coverage on management of patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysms. There is a good base of standard information, including state-of-the-art care concepts. Added to this are some recent but unproved therapies and a sprinkling of speculative ideas for the future.

Adverse aspects of this book are its lack of smooth organization, suggesting that it was compiled from manuscripts presented at a meeting. This leads to some redundancy and lack of logical progression from subject to subject. Although most of the information represents standard care, the reader must exercise some caution in distinguishing fact from speculation.

The first chapter is a brief but excellent review of the natural history of ruptured intracranial aneurysms. The remainder of the first half of the book deals primarily with preoperative and perioperative care of patients, including an excellent chapter on angiographic evaluation of subarachnoid hemorrhage.
