The emphasis is rightly on tumour diagnosis...particularly successful in sections on the diagnosis of non-neoplastic disorders. The clinical context is well-covered.

"a unique contribution to the field of surgical neuropathology...like having a seasoned, expert consultant on-call at the microscope on the desktop." "Contains the most comprehensive discussion of epilepsy neuropathology I have seen" -American Journal of Surgical Pathology
"The intended target audience is practicing pathologists and trainees, especially those who are not experienced in the handling and diagnostic approach to neuropathological entities. Neurosurgeons will gain valuable and practical insights into the practice of neuropathology detailed in this book. Experienced neuropathologists will also benefit from the carefully considered, yet sometimes controversial topics the author explores. Dr. Miller, now clinical professor of pathology and anatomical sciences at the University of Missouri, Columbia, has outstanding credentials. He has published widely on neurosurgical topics during his 28-plus year career at academic centers recognized for their neurosurgical and neuropathological excellence, notably Massachusetts General Hospital and New York University Medical Center, opportunities that provided high-volume, exceptional quality, and diverse neurosurgical specimens....The working guide approach, written in the author's thought-provoking style with in-depth analyses of many complex issues relating to neuropathological diagnosis, distinguishes this book from several current popular neuropathology texts."
