While carrying it around 3 continents reading and reviewing it, my biceps filled out quite nicely, and I delayed many travelers because it is thick enough to obscure potential trouble in your carryon luggage when going through airport security. It was worth it (for the neurovascular surgery not my arms). This is the second edition of a book first published in 1994. Thieme has taken over the publishing and put their genius to work, creating a beautiful book illustrated with all the key neuroimaging needed as well as many color anatomy and operative photographs and color drawings of everything from schematics of the spinal cord blood supply to surgical approaches to aneurysms to illustrations of how endovascular therapists employ the web device to endovascularly repair aneurysms. The book is still 1280 pages and is divided into 99 chapters in 10 sections. There also are 135 high-quality videos available online that have audio accompaniment. Basically all of the luminaries in
