'The book is well written and readable and presents important data on both the biological and clinical applications of laser. The bibliography is particularly rich. In short, this book is highly commendable for both the young neurosurgeon who will come across important information and the skilled neurosurgeon who will appreciate learning a new way to perform neurological surgery.' Child's Nervous System, 6/3, 1990
