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.
