Abstract

The author is a competent neurologist with wide experience. In his introduction he says "The scope of this subject extends beyond the patient toward a wider circle of contacts such as adjustors, lawyers, industrial commissions and even courts. To explain to such interested lay persons as well as to physicians the different types of illness and their relation to injury is a major aim of this book." The style and material necessarily are adapted to the understanding of the lay reader. The author has made his subject extremely lucid; his book will be widely used in medicolegal and industrial board proceedings. The material is fairly complete and accurate. There is a satisfactory bibliography and index, and the illustrations are clear. The book is too elementary for use by specialists in the field.
