This volume covers a wide range. Nine of the authors are not physicians, so the subject matter is a composite of views on both medical and social problems. The book is dedicated to Dr. Wilder Penfield, whose portrait forms the frontispiece. Three of the chapters are by him, one being a follow-up study of 203 patients who were operated on. The last chapter is an interesting account of his visit to the Isle of Cos, where Hippocrates practiced. The volume is attractively bound and provides a quick review of the various aspects of epilepsy and its therapy.
