This work, although addressed by its author to students and junior practitioners of medicine, will be read with interest and profit by all classes of physicians. The author's style is particularly attractive and he has well covered the ground of his subject. He himself makes great use of the character of sleep as a diagnostic point, and in this connection gives many useful hints. The most noticeable feature of the work is the great attention paid to treatment; insomnia is first studied in connection with each one of the various diseases upon which it depends, and then in every instance the character of the treatment to be adopted follows. The younger practitioners especially will doubtless be pleased to find that the author has given a large number of his own favorite formulæ.
