Stroke is a common cause of disability and the third most common cause of death but fails to attract much public attention. This book seeks to redress the balance by describing who suffers strokes and why. Anyone can have a stroke, but why is it mainly a disease of older age? Why do babies and children get strokes? What should we do for suspected stroke? How should stroke be treated and perhaps more importantly, how can we all make changes to our lives to prevent this happening to ourselves and our family.
In this book, a large amount of reliable research data has been summarised to provide an authoritative evidence based medicine guide to stroke definition, incidence, management and prevention. This book will be of great interest to those who have had a stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack, and for those who are concerned about having a stroke. Students and healthcare professionals will find it a useful introduction to stroke medicine. The author, a leading professor of geriatric medicine and stroke expert, puts stroke in its public health context and emphasises that we already know a huge amount but have often failed to implement strategies to improve stroke care and prevent stroke in the first place.

In 2003 he was appointed to establish a new academic unit for Geriatric Medicine in Sydney, Australia where he continues his research into stroke and Geriatric Medicine.
...an interesting addition to the available material for patient information...very comprehensive...useful to anyone wanting to understand a long-term condition - and that would include medical staff. Pulse GP Magazine This isn't a 'soft' book on stroke that holds the hand of the reader from diagnosis to treatment - it's dry, full of medical studies and hits you with the facts. But don't let this put you off. Full of tips on how to recognise stroke and the latest in research into therapies, it's well worth persevering with. Ros Holness in The Daily Mail This engaging little book is highly readable and packed with up-to-date information...it covers clrealy, concisely and quite comprehensively the aspects of risk factor management, causes and pathology of stroke,... and answers many questions that would benefit the patients themselves. ...It would be and invaluable aid to junior doctors working on a stroke unit, and it clearly deserves a space on the bookshelf. Diane Ames, Age and Ageing
