Advance Praise for Treating the Brain by Walter Bradley


“Here’s a man in a white coat who gets right to the point, makes it clearly—and has a good story to tell along the way. …Bradley is the patient-friendly doc for the rest of us, providing an easy-to-read roadmap through…the brain. [It’s] a handy guide for the times when we need help.”

Publishers Weekly, August 31, 2009

"With so much of the brain still shrouded in mystery, this book gives a blow by blow account of how the brain works and the various injuries and diseases that can plague it. Treating the Brain is a wonderful handbook for all who wish to learn more and hope to help fathom our future potential to heal."

—Lee Woodruff, co-author "In an Instant" and author "Perfectly Imperfect"

“There is a need for a book that discusses diseases of the brain in plain English. Walter Bradley’s book does just that. Dr. Bradley is talking to the reader, as he has to many patients, covering not only the medical, but also the everyday aspects of problems. A lifetime of caring and thoughtful advice comes through clearly.”

—Guy McKhann, MD, Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience, The Johns Hopkins University

 “…one of the world's leading neurologists has written a wonderful book for people who are not neurologists, but want to learn about the brain. This book clearly describes how this complex organ works, what happens when it breaks down, and how it might be repaired. Dr. Bradley's book is an ideal user's handbook."

—Kenneth M. Heilman, MD, James E. Rooks Jr. Distinguished Professor Department of Neurology University of Florida

“This is an excellent and rather unique idea, [and] the personal, patient-based approach is appealing. One of the difficulties with this type of book is to know how detailed to be [and still] remain comprehensive to the inquisitive and intelligent reader….[Bradley] has found the middle road.”

—Andrew Eisen, MD, FRCPC, Professor Emeritus, University of British Columbia Neurology

“Dr. Bradley, with the hard earned ease of decades of neurological practice, education and research, conveys vital knowledge in a manner that is both interesting and enlightening. A high achievement indeed.”

—Vladimir Hachinski, CM, MD, FRCPC, DSc, Distinguished University Professor, University of Western Ontario
