After years of teaching his subject to medical students, the author, a well known neuropathologist and neuro-anatomist, has incorporated his material in this book. He explains clearly and adequately the difficult subject in its broad outlines and the book has many beautiful illustrations. The anatomic explanations are unusually clear and understandable. In a separate section, details of neuropathologic staining technics are briefly described. At the end of the book outlines for student drawings are printed on perforated pages so that they can be detached. These are especially useful for medical students. The work is highly recommended for its purpose in teaching students neuro-anatomy.
