The title of this book describes well its contents, for it is a "how-to-do-it" manual that carefully and clearly instructs the reader step-by-step how to test visual fields. The book is written by an experienced and knowledgeable clinician who, for many years, has been interested in teaching perimetry to ophthalmologists and their technicians. It has been extensively field tested, for it evolved from a set of lecture handouts Dr Anderson prepared for a course on perimetry eight years ago. The course, a popular one, has been repeated frequently, and with each repetition the lecture notes have been expanded and improved. Several years ago I was fortunate to obtain a pirated copy of the notes and found them to be an excellent aid that I have used in teaching perimetry. The book, however, far surpasses in excellence the previous notes and much credit for this goes to the many superb illustrations
