3rd ed, edited by Joel S. Glaser, MD, 688 pp, $115, Philadelphia, Pa, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1999.

Once again, Dr Glaser has captured the essentials of neuro-ophthalmology in his third edition of this text. He is the author of many of the 18 chapters, which also include contributions from 20 other professionals. The sections dealing with afferent visual pathways, the retina, the optic nerve, and pediatric neuro-ophthalmology have been thoroughly revised. The final chapter, "The Dizzy Patient: Disturbances of the Vestibular System," is a welcome addition, providing a concise overview of the vestibular system for the practicing clinician, with a handy clinical assessment section that explains most of the common terminology used to evaluate vestibular disorders.
