From the reviews:

"The book is written at a level of sophistication that will make it useful to physicians who are directly involved in the care of children with tumors of the central nervous system. Yet it will also be of interest to a broader audience, because it integrates information from a wide array of subspecialties … . this up-to-date-book … is well organized and offers a unified and comprehensive reference beyond what can be found in textbooks." (Gregory E. Plautz, The New England Journal of medicine, Issue no. 11, 2004)

"The editors have compiled descriptions of the pediatric CNS tumors most clinical departments are likely to encounter. … I found the text not only very readable but also useful as a reference tool. … the book has great value in the neuroradiology reading room. … This book is a good read for anyone who interprets imaging studies from neurooncology patients … . this book’s greatest utility will be in neuroradiology reading rooms serving as a reference text and a teaching tool. Overall grade: Excellent." (James Murakami, Pediatric Radiology, Vol. 36 (2), 2006)
