This is a most practical and useful book. The author writes from a standpoint of physiology and anatomy and therefore does not force the student or practitioner to memorize individual symptoms of each nervous disease. This format and this method of describing neurologic diseases are well adapted to a book of this type. The twenty-nine chapters are divided into two parts. Part I takes up the general principles of neurologic diagnosis. Part II gives a descriptive account of the commoner diseases of the nervous system. This book is written for the student and the general practitioner, but it should be in the hands of all medical men—practitioners as well as specialists.
