Electroencephalography is now a widely accepted diagnostic procedure. The authors are fully competent to discuss the subject, for they have had years of experience at the Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York. The book gives a descriptive account of the electroencephalogram as it is recorded in both normal and diseased states; there is also an atlas of tracings that illustrate various types of responses and a bibliography that covers the literature through 1949. This book, which is clearly written in simple, direct language, offers an accurate description of electroencephalography as it is practiced today. Numerous examples of the response in disease conditions, particularly epilepsy, are clearly depicted. The book covers its subject adequately and can be highly recommended.
