On the 60th anniversary of Professor Bing's Kompendium, Dr. Haymaker has contributed to the neurologic literature the 15th edition of Bing's Local Diagnosis in Neurological Disease. He must be congratulated on what is certainly the finest edition in this excellent and long accepted text. The well written, extremely readable text, organizes neurologic lesions in an anatomicophysiologic framework, progressing from a segmental, spinal cord level to the highest cortical functions in a systematic fashion.
The information provided in this book is well organized, extremely detailed yet succinct, and current, with 1969 references quoted. Regarding the references, the extensive bibliography which follows the chapter in which it is quoted must be considered one of the strong features of this book. The table of contents is explicit and greatly enhances the usefulness of the book. The illustrations, both diagrammatic and clinicopathologic, supplement and expand the text efficiently. The index is certainly adequate.
