The title of this book is misleading; only 51 of its 211 pages of text are devoted to the surgical management and 21 pages to nonsurgical management. It is actually a fairly complete textbook on strabismus. The remaining 139 pages indicate clearly the author's other two areas of particular interest, namely, physiology (48 pages) and neurology.
