"Modern Surgical Neuropathology" by Doug C. Miller to be published next month
I just pre-ordered Modern Surgical Neuropathology by Douglas C. Miller, MD, PhD from Cambridge University Press, which provides this description: "Brain and spinal cord tumors are the predominant focus, but a full spectrum of infectious, inflammatory, and congenital disorders are also covered in detail, in both pediatric and adult populations, with a full range of diagnostic modalities. The book is illustrated with more than 1,200 full-color photomicrographs and accompanied by a CD-ROM of all images in a downloadable format." For those of us who teach, those downloadable digital images are a big selling point.
If you can keep a secret, I'll share with you a promotional code which will reduce the price of the book from $235 down to $188. When ordering here, from the Cambridge University Press, use the promotional code "MSN09" and you get the bargain-basement discount. Keep this between you and me, will ya?
By the way, Cambridge University Press is this year celebrating its 425th anniversary! The publishing house has been in continuous operation since 1584. That's young compared to the University of Cambridge itself, which this year is celebrating its 800th anniversary.
