This little book of 160 pages deserves the attention of both the internist and the neurologist. It deals with the anatomy, physiology and pharmacology of the visceral nervous system and illustrates these fundamental subjects with simple and readily understandable diagrams. Such subjects as the anatomy of the different sensory fibers of the visceral system and the distribution of the sympathetic fibers from the thoracico-lumbar cord to the spinal and cranial nerves and thence to the end organs are thoroughly dealt with.
The clinical chapters are brief and, beyond a few observations on the results of trauma occurring from war missiles, contain no new material.
Altogether the book is clearly written, well illustrated and complete from the point of view of anatomy and physiology. As a means of reviewing this subject, it is excellent.
