This monograph on vertigo is exhaustive and well written. In the first chapter the author discusses some general anatomicophysiologic facts concerning the vestibular apparatus and supplements this discussion with a description of the normal reactions of the labyrinth. The chapters are all graphically illustrated and are extremely relevant. A considerable amount of space is devoted to physiologic vertigo or sea sickness, as also to vertigo of aviation. Chapter 4 deals with Ménières disease and chapter 5 with Ménière's syndrome. The author discusses these two subjects in detail, particularly from the etiologic standpoint. Chapter 6 deals with the therapy of the various forms of vertigo. Finally there is an extensive bibliography, which is cited freely throughout the text. The book is printed on good paper and exhibits a comprehensive present day conception of this difficult subject.
