Neuro-ophthalmology has been well served by authors; every literary niche seems to have been filled with excellent books! David Cogan, MD, has produced several durable breviaries, and encyclopedias of neuro-ophthalmology have been available since Wilbrand and Saenger collaborated to produce Neurologie des Auges between 1900 and 1922. Walsh and Hoyt's three volumes, which appeared in 1969, soon became the standard reference work in the field. Three years ago, the first volume of the fourth edition by Neil Miller, MD, appeared; it covered the visual sensory system and the optic nerve. The second volume, which has just appeared, covers the autonomic nervous system, the ocular motor system, and nonvisual sensory disorders, including headache.
Dr Miller has succeeded in the difficult task of improving, revising, and updating a classic. His achievement is like that of an architect who modernizes and enhances the beauty of a landmark yet remains faithful to the original.
