In the review of the fifth edition of this book it was stated that the book could not be praised too highly, that it contains everything essential and states it in a clear manner, and that nonessentials are omitted. With seven editions in seventeen years its popularity is amply proved. The number of illustrations, mostly inserts and well chosen, is greater than in previous editions. So much also has been added to the text that the maximum desirable size for a book of this kind has been reached. When a new edition becomes necessary the author should condense the material and decrease rather than increase the size of the book. It is extremely helpful for students, general practitioners and neurologists alike.
