This book is based on a thorough and detailed study of thirty-one patients suffering from narcolepsy. In eight instances encephalographic studies were made. While no attempt is made to review the literature, those articles which are pertinent to the discussion of isolated points are carefully cited. The authors are convinced that narcolepsy should be considered a syndrome and not a disease sui generis, as maintained by many writers, notably Adie. They are impressed with the value of treatment with ephedrine as recommended by Janota and by Doyle and Daniels. Throughout, there is manifested a critical out dispassionate point of view. It is to be regretted that a work containing so much data of value does not have an index.
