An excellent educational booklet for the layman. Simple diagrams show parts of brain and areas where various types of tumors arise. Emphasis is on defining terms so that the patient or persons concerned with the patient can understand the complex and often confusing language used by medical personnel. A brief discussion of treatment and a glossary are included.
