This short, unillustrated, undocumented book is comparable to a prolonged hallway conversation with a colleague willing to relate how he treats his strabismus patients. It has the easy charm of such a conversation, and an occasional pearl of a personal technique. But despite its simplicity, the book provides a number of opportunities for disagreement, more than are acknowledged in the final chapter on "Areas of Controversy." The use of degrees rather than prism diopters and the use of Urist's "clumping" classification of the A and V phenomenon constitute a variance from the consensus of other writers in this field.

The author states a modest objective in his preface: "to present a method of treatment of strabismus that the neophyte can use when confronted with the crosseyed child." This much he has done. But the neophyte would do well to get other opinions, too.
