The Doctors Sidman are brothers, Richard, professor of neuropathology at Harvard, Murray, of psychology. For a programmed workbook in clinically oriented neuroanatomy, the combination should be unbeatable. The 645 pages of this book contain 1,318 items, each in the form of a sentence or paragraph with missing words to fill in, and usually with a small diagram which in many cases is a 3-D phantom rendering. The small size of the cuts, however, precludes the secondary shading that is necessary for stereoscopic illusion.

The present volume (a second volume is in preparation) includes about half of the subject matter of neuroanatomy: upper and lower motor systems, somesthetic system, spinal cord—the subjects best suited, by their positive quality and clinical applications, to this treatment. For the complete set, a medical student will make an investment of, presumably, some $23 in addition to a textbook, and the book cannot be reused if filled in.
