From the reviews of the second edition: "The main purpose is to address the major advances in this area, particularly related to the technological developments that have been behind the continuous progress in the field in the 60 years since its introduction. Neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiation oncologists, neuro-oncologists, and radiation physicists are the main audience. ... This is a needed update. ... It is well worth its price."
