In this little book, prepared for the guidance of the practicing physician, the author discusses the pathology of sleep rather than its physiology. Various abnormalities of sleep are taken up from the standpoint of their probable etiology, and appropriate treatment is suggested. The handling of the subject is somewhat involved because the writer separates sleep and its disturbances into three artificial elements, vegetative, cerebrospinal and psychic. The volume also suffers from the absence of a bibliography.
