The purpose of this annual review, in the words of the editor, is "to present as complete a picture of recent developments as possible... and to offer a balanced picture in which each discipline is afforded a fair representation." It is divided into four parts: basic science, neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry. The 67 contributors have accomplished a monumental task in presenting their material, and one can understand why the effort to offer as complete a picture as possible makes much of the book, in effect, an annotated bibliography.

The pediatrician will not find in this a book to read at the end of a busy day, but it is useful as a means of obtaining some idea of the recent developments in the fields represented, and one may select from the more than 2,800 references the papers which excite one's interest.
