The author presents a systematic method for examining patients with neurologic or psychiatric disturbances. The book is instructive in that it gives numerous suggestions as to what to look for and how to describe what is seen or found. The language of neurology contains numerous trade terms with which the average general practitioner is usually wholly unfamiliar; e. g., "mussitating delirium," "motorstereotypy," "carphology." Those working in this field must of course familiarize themselves with this terminology. The translation is good, and the book a useful one.
