The authors have proved again that a picture is worth a thousand words. They have adhered to the principles of good pedagogy by giving the reader a maximum of drawings and illustrations and a minimum of words. All sketches of the technique and anatomic detail are from the surgeon's perspective as he operates at the head of the patient. This facilitates quick orientation and understanding, especially for the student. The drawings are crystal clear, easy to follow, and are presented in orderly sequence. Another excellent feature is the index of instruments and notes on instruments. This incomparable book offers a sound and fundamental approach to the teaching of the resident in ophthalmology and should serve as a review for the busy clinician.
