The third edition of Ranson's book and the large list of medical schools in which it is used as a textbook testify to its deserved popularity among students of neurology. The story of the anatomy of the nervous system is a complex one at best, but here it is told tersely and simply. Questions are discussed adequately in such a manner as never to confuse the reader. Several paragraphs have been added which deal with the latest facts. The underlying principle of introducing the beginning student to the correlation of anatomic, physiologic and clinical facts is still adhered to. An excellent laboratory annual and bibliography round out an ideal text and reference book on the anatomy of the nervous system.
