“This book is a welcome addition to the neuropsychiatric literature. … The primary audience is neurologists, stroke physicians, and psychiatrists … . Each chapter concludes with relevant and timely citations of the scientific literature. This excellent book on the neuropsychiatry of stroke is a must read for any clinician involved in the care of stroke patients. I highly recommend it.” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody’s Book Reviews, November, 2013)
