Nine editions of any medical book in twenty years should vouch for its usefulness and popularity. In the last edition of this work, Monrad-Krohn has again presented his subject in a clear and simple way. Within its space, one would like to have seen a more detailed survey of the examination of the peripheral nerves than is now given. Galvanic and faradic stimulation is described at length, and the clinically more important electromyography is represented by only three lines. In general, however, the examination of the nervous system is well covered, and this new edition will no doubt be of great help to students and practitioners.
