This Essentials book answers all the key questions asked about stroke in succinct, accessible and up-to-date form. lf you want more information than we can give you in this book, you might be interested in the book Stroke: Answers at your Fingertips, by Anthony Rudd, Penny Irwin and Bridget Penhale, published by Class Health (www.class.co.uk). There is a glossary at the end of this book. However, it contains more terms than you will find within the body of the book. More about these topics can be found in Stroke: Answers at your Fingertips (abbreviated in the cross-references to Stroke AAYF). You will also find the websites for The Stroke Association (www.stroke.org.uk) and Different Strokes (www.differentstrokes.co.uk for the younger patient) very helpful.
