This tremendously practical and easily understandable book should become more popular in the medical schools of the United States. It is made up of twenty-nine chapters divided into two parts. Part one takes up the general principles of neurologic diagnosis and part two gives a descriptive account of the more common diseases of the nervous system. The book is written for use by the student and the general practitioner. It should be in the office of all medical men. The author has written his book from a practical standpoint so that the reader will not have to remember individual symptoms of each nervous disease but has to learn those symptoms which occur in lesions of various structures or systems. This book is highly recommended.
