Missing vital topics

Its a very good resource but misses some important aspects. No information specific to different types of strokes, especially not even a mention of TIA. Hardly any information or discussion about how to avoid a new stroke. This book is probably better as a reference book since there is a lot of information a survivor or relative would want to look up as needed.

Excellent introduction

Good explanation of what stroke is and variety of possible treatments. I recommend this book to anyone who is dealing with stoke for themselves or family/friend.
