Helpful Score: 1
Blurb on the back: "The heart is stopped. The brain is chilled to the edge of existence. This is the Standstill. Now the rescue begins."
Fascinating stories of neurosurgery, described so that they are completely accessible to the layperson. Covers very cutting-edge (ha ha) technology, with a smattering of history, and a foreshadowing of what may be possible in neurosurgical technique in the future. The author is a Nonfiction Pulitzer Prize nominee.
