The material presented will be familiar to those interested in CBF as most of it has been previously published. Some of the newer and more promising methods of CBF measurement are detailed, the ultrasonic, impedance, hydrogen electrode, and local 133Xe clearance methods among others. A fair balance between methodology and experimental or clinical results is maintained; references are copious. Unfortunately, some rather uncritical material on impedance rheology and the use of mode circulation time is included while discussion of several important new methods including Ter Pegossian's 15O technique are omitted. One might have expected, in view of this volume's title and price, more of a review of the entire CBF field and an effort to evaluate critically present
