The images are excellent. It is the text that causes problems.
There are multiple problems with the text.
The first arises in chap 2. The cartoon shows 8 cut. There are only 7 discussed. No explanation is given.
The remainder of the introduction it has to be said is good.
The organisation of the cases is a bit unusual. There are 2 meningiomas (case 2+3) and the next is case 8.
Perhaps is just me, but I would prefer that the tumours (cases 1-30) were organised either by pathology - astrocytoma, menginoma, etc or by location - skull base, vault etc rather than what appears to be a random order. I suspect that these cases may reflect the order in which the cases presented to the department.
There is considerable overlap between the cases: this is most noticable in the menigoma cases where the same information is repeated.
There are quite a number of difficulties in the text: Example: case 35 "<6mm N in kids". This is presumably "< 6mm is normal in kids". Kids - a age range is desirable when dealing with children as numerical values are usually age dependent.
Case 70 mentions Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare. These are actually two distinct species. While they may have similar presentations they probably should not be hyphenated.
Case 78: the taxonomy of the fungi is not clear. The taxonomy given is correct but it is difficult to understand as it is written without re reading the text. The impression given - which may be incorrect - is that the author is not familiar with the taxonomy of these organisms - which is quite understandable as it is confusing.
Case 81: The author redefines CPM (central pontine mylinolysis) twice on the same page. He mentions the origianl description by Adams et al in 1959 but then fails to list the reference. This seems odd.
The images are good. The introduction is good. There is a lot of excellent clinical information which would be of use to a non expert in this area. The tables with differential diagnoses are very good.
Overall the book is not bad. The variety of cases and images are good.
What this book needs is a better editor to reorganise the cases and to spot the irritating mistakes that are dotted throughout the book. With a little more work this book could be an excellent one
