Overall, this useful book provides the specialist and the general reader with an extensive and up–to–date review of genetic factors that may play a part in cerebrovascular diseases. The chapters are packed with information and have been written clearly. The book is an excellent resource for physicians dealing with cases of cerebrovascular diseases in which the family history suggests the role of inheritance. ...On a whole, this book fills an obvious gap in the field and is therefore a welcome addition to the neurologic and general medical literature."

––The New England Journal of Medicine

"The audience identified in the preface is both practitioners and researchers. I believe that there is something to be gained from this work for both groups. The editor is certainly reputable in the field and respected.
"I enjoyed reading and reviewing this book."

––Doody s Review Service

"The broad overview provided together with a comprehensive reference list makes this book a valuable addition to the bookshelf of the neurologist caring for young stroke patients or those with unusual stroke syndromes. Although this is a rapidly evolving field, little of what is contained in this book will necessarily go out of date. Rather it will act as a firm base to which future developments will be added."
