Very good. First edition. A monograph of incredible description and detail, the product of twenty-five years' work. "The meticulous categorization of meningiomas, their presentation, clinical outcome, and surgical therapies are even further supplemented by Cushing's personal commentary, questions, and recollections. Cushing's genius was evident in his ability not only to make insightful clinical observations, but also to synthesize these ideas within the neurosurgical context of his era. As he says in Meningiomas, 'Thus the pathological curiosity of one day becomes in its proper time a commonplace . . . most of which are one and the same disorder—had, for their interpretation, to await the advent of the Neurosurgeon.'" - Journal of Neurosurgery (Abstract) October 2003, vol. 99, no. 4, pp. 787-791.
