This book is a monograph on the physiology of the retina published by the Physiological Society of Great Britain. It is addressed to workers in this field and probably represents the best exposition of the subject as yet published. It is difficult reading, and unless one is already well acquainted with the subject material it is not recommended, but for those who are well acquainted with the modern concepts of the photochemistry and electrical activity which goes on in the retina as the result of light stimuli, the book is both rewarding as a compilation of knowledge and stimulating from the new points of view which the author continually brings up as the result of his own work.

There is an excellent bibliography at the end.
