This book presents an intriguing introduction to orbital diseases and their diagnosis and treatment. It is written concisely and has, as one of its main themes, the interesting idea of presenting "the six p's of orbital clinical evaluation," among which are pain, progression, proptosis, and palpation. The text reads easily, and the illustrations are most informative.

This book is addressed to the ophthalmologist with little experience in orbital surgery or to the resident who has not yet been through an orbital service. It should whet the appetite of many ophthalmologists and should help to keep the orbit within the realm of ophthalmology—a worthwhile endeavor indeed.
