Regardless of the minor errors that must necessarily creep into a work of such optimistic scope as the titles of these volumes imply, they cannot be praised too highly. Here for the first time is an attempt at summarization of what has proved the best of the tremendous literature in the specialties of neurology and psychiatry and their allied fields. These works are not simply reprints of authors' summaries but are the resynthesis of a tremendous literature carefully sifted and the unessential discarded. Too much time is included in the "recent," and individual detail has been somewhat sacrificed. Nevertheless, these books are invaluable to the neuropsychiatrist and should certainly be continued yearly or biyearly.
