Any book that reaches a fourth edition must be able to satisfy a need in American medicine. That certainly is true of Dr. Cobb's, "Foundations of Neuropsychiatry." In simple language he covers the basic fundamentals that a student of the nervous system needs to know. If there is any criticism, it is that not enough of the psychologic foundations of psychiatry itself are included. However, for the audience toward which this book is directed it is exceedingly satisfactory.
