The first edition of this skilfully condensed book appeared in 1921. The review of it in the Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry in November of that year stated that it contained an astonishing amount of information; that the field was exceedingly well covered, and that the thoroughness of the work, in view of its size, was surprising. The review concluded by saying that if a few thousand practitioners and a few hundred neurologists would commit its contents to memory "the American neurological level would rise like the Wissahickon in a spring freshet." All of this is still more true of the present slightly enlarged edition. Its great merit is that it gives in a clear way everything essential about methods of examination and nothing more. Even the Bárány vestibular tests, the Binet-Simon tests and methods of electrical examination are made easy of understanding. This book has been recommended to students
