This edition has several features which especially commend it to new readers. In the running text quotations from case records have been interspersed to aid one in fọrming a correct idea of a given psychosis. Besides numerous changes of small import calculated to bring the book into harmony with contemporaneous thought the author has added the useful chapter on the Binet-Simon scale for measuring intelligence. We can only reiterate the statement made in a review of a former edition that this book is one of the best small text on psychiatry in the English language.
