This book is of no general value to the ophthalmologist. It is a general survey of the entire field of neurosurgery with emphasis on the authors' experience. The authors apparently make very little use of neuro-ophthalmological techniques for diagnosis. There are also many inaccuracies, such as the statement that anterior communicating artery aneurysms produce sub-hyaloid hemorrhages in the retina. These are supposedly seen at the margins of the optic disks between the retina and hyaloid membrane. From a neurological point of view I am not particularly impressed by this book.
