This book is difficult to classify. It is evidently addressed to the laity and contains a great deal of information likely to be useful to patients suffering from epilepsy and migraine and to their relatives. This does not represent its entire appeal, however. Many intelligent nonmedical readers who have no personal concern with the subject will develop an abstract interest in it through this volume. The book has a dramatic as well as an intellectual side, and devotes much space to the historical and economic aspects of seizures, as well as to more purely medical considerations.

Physicians also will find much that is new and of value in this book. It records the results of the extensive statistical investigations carried out by the Boston group over the past half-dozen years. Much of this material is of great potential importance in understanding of the problem of epilepsy. The chart on page
