While this book is not devoted exclusively to pediatrics, it includes a considerable amount of material on congenital hydrocephalus and other forms occurring in infancy and childhood. The whole volume is so well written and so excellently organized that the reviewer read it straight through from cover to cover without putting it down. The publisher should also be congratulated on the clear printing and general appearance of this little book. It would make an excellent gift.
