This book is an excellent presentation of the modern point of view of neurology. It is a little larger than the average manual, but the description is necessarily curtailed, as would be expected in a textbook which covers neurology in so few pages. The arrangement follows classic lines. The methods of examination include psychometric tests by the author's brother, Dr. David Wechsler. Then follow, in order, descriptions of diseases of the spinal cord, the peripheral nerves and the brain. The neuroses which follow are covered in sixty pages. No attempt is made to include all the endocrine disorders. The book is essentially a sane, modern presentation which can be recommended to the student.
