This book is written to teach. It is the thoughtful experience of one man and directs its emphasis to just those problems which are most fundamental. The author's opinions are clearly stated in summarizing paragraphs at the end of each section. The only fault is that potential readers may be intimidated by the title. Between what seem to be narrow boundaries, however, is a collection of neuro-ophthalmic nuggets which expand the range of this book so that ophthalmologists at any level can read it with profit. The book is thoroughly readable, and partial credit for this must go to Dr. Blodifor his excellent translation.

Within these pages are so many important points, so clearly stated, that one is tempted to recommend this as a first book for the resident; it certainly could be one of the first. The introductory chapter on the neuro-ophthalmic examination is superb.
