This is a small book of about 300 pages on clinical neurology. Its purpose of outlining a technic of neurologic examination and pointing out the significance of each finding briefly is excellently accomplished.
The important steps in making an examination are outlined. It begins with the history, the means of examination, the cranial nerves, the motor system and the sensory system and then considers anatomic diagnosis with regard to each part of the nervous system. Clear language is employed, leaving no question as to the meaning of the authors. No point of examination is recorded without stating then and there the significance of the findings. The topics of clinical importance are headlined in bold type, and their divisions immediately follow. About 100 figures and drawings, many in color, clearly facilitate the understanding of the topics.
To an experienced neurologist this outline may mean merely a review of the subject matter
