This excellent book represents an effort to give a' thorough discussion of neurologic diagnoses without entering the domain of controversial or esoteric neuroanatomy or physiology. While it follows in general plans which have previously been used by others, there are a number of outstanding features: fine paper and good type, numerous reproductions of anatomic preparations, lucid diagrams of nervous pathways and centers, practical clinical diagnostic tables and photographs of patients with various clinical lesions. The reviewer believes that this book fulfils very well the authors' purpose of aiding the general physician in the fundamentals of clinical neurology.
