In a book of ninety-eight pages the authors have produced some of the best illustrations in any textbook on neurology. The book consists of two parts: the first is full of colored illustrations which show beautifully, for example, the diagram of the path of the fifth nerve; a new illustration of the fibers of the internal capsule; the central connections of all the cranial nerves, etc. In the second part, which is physiologic, a short summary is given of the functions of the different parts of the brain.

There is no doubt that the authors have fulfilled what they set out to do; that is, produced a book which helps the student and illustrates those points which are not usually found in the average textbook.
