The author rightfully considers that the cornerstone of clinical neurology is knowledge of the cranial nerves, and in this small book he gives an adequate presentation of this subject. Each nerve is considered under five heads: (1) anatomy, (2) function, (3) tests, (4) pathology and (5) localization. The motor nerves are traced from the nucleus outward, and the sensory from the periphery inward. The illustrations are adequate. The book can be recommended for students.
