This small book is a "descriptive syllabus for study before and after viewing a projection" of teaching films prepared in the Department of Neurology at Columbia University and the Neurological Institute, New York. Even without the films, the clear, simple text and the two hundred and fifty well chosen illustrations constitute a brief atlas of the commoner motor neurologic disorders and a useful manual of clinical methods for their demonstration. Controversial matters are eschewed, and only elementary facts are presented. Somewhat trite for the well versed neurologist, the volume is nevertheless a worthy compendium of what the physician can and should know about the subject, as well as a valuable primer for the student.
