This annual publication is one of thirteen comprising the practical medicine series. It contains 750 pages consisting of reviews of neurologic entities (249 pages), psychiatric diseases (223 pages) and neurosurgical procedures (239 pages). This book is primarily a review of some of the studies appearing in print relative to neurology, psychiatry and neurosurgery. This volume at present can be useful for the general practitioner in that some of the important nervous system diseases are reviewed. Unfortunately, this type of book only surveys various printed forms of endeavor without "pro and con" discussions. The excellent monthly publication of section VIII of "Excerpta Medica" has replaced this "Year Book" for specialists. The "Excerpta Medica" publishes a review of every article in the entire world dealing with neurology, psychiatry, neurosurgery and therapy. In the "Year Book" the neurosurgical section is relatively new and should be of some help to all physicians and surgeons
