As it is well printed and beautifully and profusely illustrated, one immediately has a sense of pleasure on opening this book. Dr. Ford has dealt with his subject thoroughly. Of special value are the discussions of the neurologic conditions of childhood. One wishes that he had devoted more space to these, since there is otherwise a good deal of material which is readily available in general medical and neurologic textbooks. Especially valuable are the references, conveniently placed after each section. The abstracts of individual cases make a difficult subject more vivid and comprehensible.
