It allows the reader to utilize the text as a study guide rather than solely as a reference book. -- World Neurosurgery Written by an esteemed educator and founder of the renowned Chicago Review Course in Neurological Surgery™, this updated review reflects substantive content additions to the 8th edition. The two prior editions of the Rapid Review were must-have companions that fully leveraged the vast knowledge contained within Greenberg's legendary tome.
