The author's stated purpose is to provide "a detailed and comprehensive account of fluorescein angiographic findings of retinal disorders." He has assembled a collection of beautiful color photographs and fluorescein angiograms for this concise volume. Although the illustrations are of superb quality, the accompanying text is excessively brief and inconsistent and does not provide "detailed" or "comprehensive" coverage of this complex and broad subject.

"... high-quality illustrations.... However... this book cannot be recommended as a primary text

The first chapter describes the properties of fluorescein, and recapitulates the history of and process for obtaining an angiogram. The following two chapters discuss normal and abnormal angiographic findings. These two chapters combined contain five pages of figures and four pages of explanatory text.
