Nerve Injuries and Their Repair caps Sir Sydney Sunderland's considerable contributions to the subject of nerve fiber degeneration and regeneration. As he states in the preface, there is no need to restate much of the contents of Nerves and Nerve Injury. In this book, therefore, he provides a companion volume to the earlier editions that addresses itself to amendments and "new and relevant information on nerve injury and repair." For those persons who have found the earlier editions helpful in their thinking and practice, this volume should be purchased to give them Dr Sunderland's further views.

The appearance of this book is pleasing and has clear type and good line drawings. The information is often presented in point form. When this device is used to list a series of observations, different points and views, or components of a subject, it is quite effective. For other purposes, it seems contrived.
